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.

Figure Studies in Longer Poses

These are more of my life drawings from last Fall during my trip to Oklahoma City.

The first two studies are from Pizza Night at OCU, which is always a lot of fun. The costumed models were especially interesting to study.

Both the young lady in the fluffy cape and the young man with the furry collar are studying acting. Interesting in their assumed roles, they were also very good models, holding still for the long pose.
