Nude with Mask!


I am just starting to navigate the internet world of blogs and websites, and have been reading a lot of daily painter blogs. The criteria is that the artist produces nearly a painting a day. The sites are really nice, but, although I do paint nearly everyday, except Saturday, it takes me about a month, (with drying time between the first layer of oil paint and the last) to produce a final painting...if not longer.
I am thinking of starting another blog that would be about...monthly painters...lol. All in due time. I have only had my blog since June, but am amazed at all the wonderful blogs out there that have been around for years! It also takes a lot of (painting) time just to search out all the art related blogs and websites. I have to limit my time, or it can get away from me!
This painting today is one of my model Kaitlin wearing a mask in front of a large target. The target is a nod to the art of the 50's and 60's, more specific, Jasper Johns, and the mask makes me think of a carnival theme. I plan to paint some more paintings in a similar vein.

One of my friends from SD said he'd like to purchase this piece. Please call or email me with a price.

Thanks Leah! That painting is at the Modernism Gallery in San Francisco right now, (for my one woman show), and I'm not sure of the exact price. If your friend wants to contact them, I'm sure they will give him a price. (I will give them a heads up.)The size is rather large: 32' x 21" (not including frame).

Thanks! I haven't been posting much lately, because I am trying to save most of my new paintings (from the internet), until my new show in San Francisco.
