I guess I painted this in reaction to the cold weather we've been having - even here in Texas, although I know it doesn't compare to the north and east of the country!
Usually, I don't use so many warm colors, but again, I guess it was the need to feel warm and cozy. Here's hoping we've seen the end of the cold. This painting is 8 x 10" on archival canvas panel. Thanks for stopping by!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
