The Female Figure

I did these at Palette and Chisel when they had their 7 hr long marathon on labor day. I have plenty more but these are  the ones I enjoy the most. Thinking of doing a series of female paintings. We will see what I come up with. I felt alive drawing that day as well as being among those that love to do the same thing. 

Sketches long due

Painting people while they meandered through the park. Longest one was 30 seconds.

So its been a while...more sketches I did while in Savannah. My do I miss that place.

I did this a while back in March for Ali's Faceless group exhibition. For some reason, there is something about this piece that is intriguing to me. It is not one of my best pieces and I struggled with the paint on this one, but perhaps how I felt and what I was thinking while I painted this still lingers. It's almost like the one dream you want to remember but you cant. Are our paintings mostly dreams on a subconscious level?
