I started working on this almost a month ago, but events conspired against my getting back to it until today, and then the rain came!
Anyway, there is a lot more work to be done on this once the weather breaks.

|Spring Table, oil on canvas 36" x 40"|
In many ways this resembles some paintings from years ago - like interiors from the early 90's.

It took me twenty-seven years to get back to this idea. On Friday I stumbled upon the sketchbooks that I was working from in July and August of 1985. Here are two small sketches from the painting(-s) I finished in early August and September '85. I never got around to painting the one below until this weekend. Go figure.
The finished painting is from the left-hand sketch is owned by Jim and Ellen O'Hara.
|Study for Lisa's Space, summer 1985|
Girl on Couch 24" x 30" (in progress) oil on canvas
This is a straight-up figure painting (no bau irony) based on some old drawings from 1985 (some of you from long, long ago might recognize the model)- but the socks were borrowed from a newer set of paintings and a different model.
I managed to mangle the working drawing but here is a similar one from the same sitting.

So, it has been some time coming, but this Black Dress (w/ Morandi Bottles) painting has finally come together.
...and this one has finally "gelled"
