Nude with Floral Kimono by Andrew Daniel

I wanted to tell the story of the models expression as well as the sensuality of the nude and the silk fabrics. Makes for a feeling of emotional vulnerability that is a very engaging subject to explore.

'Full Moon after the Storm' by Theresa Oats



After a rainstorm I painted the moon and the active sky from my studio deck. A bird,which I  believe was one of the Great Horned Owls that nested every year in the cypress tree , flew out as the winds calmed.  I laid in it's image with a clean brush moistened with 'turpenoid' and rubbed out the shape as I recalled it.
Painted with oils on prepared linen  18x18
