Jack

With the arrival of spring, we are in the midst of a huge snow/ice storm (of course).  Because of the storm, our Thursday group decided not to meet, because we all travel some distance to get to Stowe.  I was pretty sad, so Jack agreed to pose for me.  This is the alla prima that I just did.  Maybe, I'll try tweaking it a bit, if I can get him to pose again.  He reached his limit for sitting, and I didn't press it.  I just realized that  I've only painted Jack a few times, but it was usually a picture of him in the act of painting , and not a head study.  It is funny how time slips away.

Hi Lizzie-San & Jeff...thanks! Jack sat for about 2.5 hours. He chopped his hair off after I painted it.

well, you won't recognize my name...but I just wanted to drop in to say I appreciate your work. The painting with your baby that makes you look left handed is definitely my favorite. Hope to see some new things soon.

Hi and thanks for writing. My grandson was born in Portland, OR, so I have been out your way a few times. My husband & I both attended an open figure drawing session at Hipbone! Small world. :) Karen
