I just finished this lovely oil painting. I did it in homage to Gil Elvgren, the great American pin -up artist. I took the photo while it was still wet so there is a terrible glare. I decided to give it a try with a limit color palette and I think it creates a disturbing mood that is quiet enjoyable. A new friend of mine has offered up her naked pregnant body as new subject matter and I'm very excited to capture it. I've always day dreamed that I would be in one of those circles of painters who would gather in cafes, discuss art then go back to some random basement and paint models who want just as badly to be in some kind of art scene. I don't even drink coffee so I am never in a cafe. Things were easier when I was in college and the model and community of artists were provided for you.
