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.

This is one of the paintings I've been working on. You may remember the charcoal sketch of this lovely model from my January 30/30 Challenge post.
Chiaroscuro is always interesting to me and I especially like this simple pose with the dramatic highlights and deep darks. The subtleties in this piece have not photographed well but you can perhaps get an idea of what it looks like. The original is much nicer (which is usually the case with what you see online vs. the actual art).
