Nude, oil by Rachel K Schlueter

Oil on 6" panel. This nude was painted during a figure study group hosted by Ink People in Eureka CA. I've been painting from a live model on and off for over thirty first experience with a live model was 1977 at the American Academy of Art in Chicago where I first learned that I had an interest in figure study. In 1990 I moved to Redway and began working with a figure group there. That's where I met the late Frank Ciecieorka, Judy Evanson, Alicia Treadway, Mariam Pal, Peg Anderson, Ralphie Hendrix and many more. I moved to Eureka in 1998 and found the Ink People where I met Curtis Otto and Gus Clark oh and my Husband Stock Schlueter where by I met many of my new friends that are like family to me now, most of them painters, no lack of inspiration in this life!
