I grew up fascinated by color. The vibration of colors heightens the my senses and effects my paintings. Color is my inspiration and motivator.

Thanks Jean Jacques Andre'

I knew I wanted to paint nudes again but didn't have the place or the time to have someone sit for me.
So I started looking for nude photographers and found http://www.artnudes.blogspot.com/
There he was, the second photographer listed. I fell in love with his work.
The Contrast. The Compostions. The Emotions.
I had to ask. He accepted.
So here they are.

Sneak Peek again

This is a sneak peek (detail) of the nude I am doing. I actually didn't work on it for awhile. I liked it but knew it wasn't finished in my mind though I liked how it looked. So now I am back working on it. Really excited how it's coming along.
I purchased two more canvases. I am doing three nudes to enter for an upcoming show at Gallery 101 in October. Even though I am doing a body of work of nudes, the three I have chosen will actually be showed as a triptych.
