Figurative Artists Atelier at Foster Gallery

  So enjoyed returning to model group after our 5 weeks in Europe.  Norah was our wonderful model....always fun to paint her.

Two Pastels

 I completed these two pastel paintings just before we departed for a long trip in late May to Switzerland, Germany and Budapest.  We had a great time and went to so many museums, galleries, castles, .....totally inspiring.  Took hundreds of photos but took no time to paint...maybe some studio time is in order!

I did these watercolors over the past few weeks and really enjoyed them as a change from oil and pastel.  There is always so much to learn by switching mediums and each has their own special pleasure.

Mari, George, and Norah are my models here and the goal was to create a more "finished" wc painting rather than just a sketch

Green Wave

I really enjoyed. doing a studio painting using recent photo references.  I may do more as they are very relaxing.   Oil on Canvas 24 x 24

New Model Group location

 Sadly, we stopped meeting at Cafe Bienville in November but found a new venue at Foster Gallery the following month.  It is a terrific spot with many new and old artists and models.  I was thrilled to take a long trip to Australia and New Zealand but am now back at doing one of my favorite things.

Hayden and Victoria were great new models and I hope we get to paint them again.
