Painting On Location
JUNE 3, 2021
I have been painting art models in and around Los Angeles for the last 26 years. Most of this work was done while I was teaching art & design students. Since my retirement nine months ago, I have decided to contine with this work on my own volition. Painting from life is thoroughly challenging, stimulating and rewarding. Most of the time, everything is in motion; the sun, the air, the shadows and the lights, and sometimes the lips:) I will miss the interaction I once had with my students, but alas, all good things must come to an end.
