Some more Jess from Summer and Fall (2009)

Thoughtful Jess (2009) oil on canvas 18" x 18"
Both of these were completed during that last days of October (when the weather was still warm enough to work in the barn-studio). It was difficult for me to work on the figure when I was trying to finish work for the Bau Movement show (scheduled to open in January, 2010). Painting and drawing the figure is probably my biggest challenge and favorite subject. There is something about working with a model that is so difficult and so rewarding at the same time.
