Portrait of a Glamour Girl – sold

glamgirl

Oil on canvas, 10″x8″

Some things never go out of style. A certain sleek elegance was achieved in the the early 20th century that’s simply timeless. She is not any particular person, but my evocation of the glamour girl of that era, beautiful, classic and charming.

BBikini (3)

Oil on hardboard panel, 7″x5″

This painting expresses the essence of a beautiful day at the beach…the brilliant light, sharp shadows and dazzling colors of sea and sand. I like how the golden hue of the sand and the cool blues of the water are echoed in the girl’s hair and skin and bright turquoise bikini.

Woman Walking at the Beach – sold

Pink Bikini

Oil on hardboard panel 7″x5″

The Blizzard of 2016 made me want to flee back to summer. So I went back to the beach in oil paint which is the only way possible at the moment. I enjoyed the challenge of painting ocean waves and splashing water and shiny wet skin. This painting provides a nice break from snow and cold…what could be better than a walk at the beach?

 

 

Woman Bathing – sold

Bather (2)

Oil on Canvas 8″x10″

This painting was inspired by the lovely paintings of bathers by Degas and Bonnard. When I look at paintings of bathers in art history I’m reminded that bathing was something of a luxury in past times. These days a bath is no longer a luxury but a deep tub and the time to spend soaking might be. This study is also about contrasts, warm and cool tones, thin glazes with impasto highlights.
