DAILY DIAPER #256 "Found Light Lost Shadow"

To bid on this painting click the diaper below.
This little figure study harkens back to my good old Atelier days. Painting it I could almost feel the other students around me scratching away at their paintings. The beauty of poses like this is the absolutes in values that you get from the highest points of light carving the profile to the complete absence of light hiding all the details from your eyes. Simply one of my favorite ways to paint the figure.

This will be the last of the bubbles for a bit I think. I loved the fact that you could see a hint of her mouth and nose through the bubble. Also the pigtails were fun to paint as well.

DAILY DIAPER #253 "Watermelon"



Click on the diaper below to bid on this painting.
I have always been a big fan of the 'other' flavors of gum, and watermelon is definitely no exception. Though the flavor is good for only a minute or so then you gotta spit that one out and pop another in. So enjoy it while it lasts cause it don't last very long.

DAILY DIAPER #251 "Pop"

To bid on this painting click the diaper below.
I really loved this shot. . . . right at the end of the day when the sun has that wonderfully intense orange light which causes not only the highlights to illuminat but the cast shadows and reflective lights to pop as well. The subject . . . well we've all tried to blow the biggest bubble and this one was up there.

A shot I took this past summer of a woman on her way in to the grocery . . . . It happened to be on one of those crazy bright days that made everything electric.

DAILY DIAPER #249 "Tumble Bumble"


To bid on this painting click the diaper below.

One of the many books that my daughter loves to bring over to me during the day. On her one day at the sitters it seems strange not to hear "Book Book Book" as I'm walking around the house. The sketch pad is one that I have had for quite a while now. When I buy one of them I always envision myself filling it with amazing ideas for paintings. Alas this one and most of it's brethren end up in the paintngs rather that holding sketches of paintings.

A scene from a recent trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum. The modern art wing has never really been one of my favorites for looking at the work but has always been one of my favorites for looking at the people looking at the work!
