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.

Here is Number Twenty-two

It is difficult to do very detailed studies of hands and feet when they are small in a drawing, so here is a focus on legs and feet for this one.

I read years ago that Pearlstein painted most of his nudes quite large so that he could concentrate on showing the hands and feet. I first saw his work at the Wichita Art Museum in the early 70s. He has been a favorite since then.
