I have come to realize that I love painting anything that is living especially people. At least for now, I don't relate to barns, buildings or other inanimate objects. There is something about people that intrigues me. We are each a compilation of all of our experiences and those experiences can often be seen in our eyes and in our body positions. When painting people I try and capture that essence - that distillation of who they are or at least who they are presenting to the world on that particular day.
Here is what is on my easel today. It is a painting that I began last week in a workshop. I've already made some adjustments to the hair but haven't photographed the changes yet.
