Another Flowered Shawl - original oil painting of a nude

Here I am with yet another nude and the reason is that I decided to clean up my studio - a MAJOR undertaking!!!!!  I made a miniscule amount of progress, but every few seconds, I unearth another life drawing that begs to be turned into a quick painting.  So, I think the cleaning project will take a long, long time.  One yesterday, one today, and I sketched a small one on an 8 x 10" canvas this afternoon - I hope I don't succumb tomorrow.  Maybe I'll be strong and get busy straightening the place up a little bit, anyway!  This one is on 14 x 11" stretched Hobby Lobby Masterpiece extra smooth canvas.   This brand is one of my new faves, along with Utrecht's canvas board (archival, of course).  Thanks so much for stopping by and please cheer me on in my cleaning endeavors!

All the best wishes to your cleaning, Connie!

I wish I have the time to make some life drawings and paintings.
