Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Charcoal Life Studies, Longer Poses












Twenty minute poses by our patient model gives us enough time to be careful with form and develop the drawing.

Your life studies make me want to go to a class. They are so inspirational. Beautiful work.

I wish you could join us for the model sessions, Suzanne. It would be fun to draw together. Our model simply shows up each week and we all pitch in to pay her; there is no instruction.

I bet you could find a group near you that does this?
