This is the painting that was accepted into the Randy Higbee Gallery 6x6 show in CA. I just sent it out today. Again, this is the model Tamara who I have been painting lately. This painting will be available for sale through the Gallery. For more information, contact me at

Painting the model

                                                            6x6 oil 175.

I have been working on small panels, 6x6 inches in anticipation of an upcoming show at the Randy Higbee Gallery in CA. There was a limited number to submit and this was one I chose to keep out of that show. I have been painting this model, Tamara, for the last several weeks and have a few paintings
I will put on here including the one that got into that show. Usually I would work on one small like this one and a large one which I would finish up  after the session in my studio. It was interesting to work on it after she had left, just from memory and trying to just make a good painting rather than a total likeness of the model.

shopper series

                                                                   8 x10 oil
This painting was done from a series I had done of people shopping.  This particular guy was in Milan outside one of the shops, waiting calmly while the dog was a little more anxious.   I tried to capture the contrast in their postures as well as the wonderful colors of that scene.
