may 29, reclining nude

This is a piece I forgot to post, it is part of my "Patterns of Life" set that I am working on. It is on paper.

commission piece

this piece is a commission piece, it is 30" x 36". It is done to go over the client's fireplace which is red brick. Made the work darker than usual because of this placement. I'm not in a hurry to do another commission piece as I have alot of other things waiting to be done. I leave for Austin in the morning and am hoping to get some artwork done there.
