6x6 oil on Gessoboard
This week's Daily Paintworks Challenge was to use a photo reference, but to quickly isolate the basic shapes from memory. I was intrigued with the heavy lady and wanted to capture her essence, using the other figure only as a supporting element.

I'm Back with "Splat"!

"Splat" 6x6

I'm finally back in my studio and happy to be painting again! I've been in Arizona since mid October, where I have access to a fabulous clay studio. Since I don't have that opportunity when I'm here in Seattle, I take advantage of it down there- and I don't paint. I love both ceramics and painting, so it's a win/win.  I look forward to re-establishing communication with my Daily Paintworks friends!

Below is one example of my ceramics. I will post some more of these in the next few days. I haven't yet figured out how to properly photograph them; they're trickier than paintings! This one is entitled "Just say Om"
