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.

Winter Figure Studies

It was good to be in places this winter where I could get drawing time at live model sessions. Here are a few sketches from Geatches in Oklahoma City.

I have more new drawings which I'll post soon. There are paintings started too, and one or two studies fit to show, as is.

I have missed your work Diana!!! These are all amazing....as always you never disappoint us! You have inspired me to join a live model class...you were so right...it's so different from using reference photos. Of course I wouldn't post them......At least not right now..lol
I look forward to seeing your next painting.
