I painted this portrait of a young woman during a group painting session at Webster Groves Christian Church in St.Louis MIssouri. It was painted in Palmer Prism Tempera paint on 16″ x 20″ stretched canvas. The model posed in 20 minute sessions for two hours. I finished the painting in my studio using a photo I took of the model as reference.

The following is the step by step process I took to create this painting.
I have used this type of palette for decades because it is easily cleaned by
washing with soap and water.This is a similar photo to the palette photo that became the basis for my painting.I placed the photo in a folder on my computer and began to look at this “found” image for a short time. I began to see a universe of planets and space. I used photoshop to create this digital painting. I began to visualize my version of the creation of the universe. My concept was to show planets colliding and changing. I have worked on this digital file off and on for several years. I have tried to express my thoughts that creating is not easy and there can be many collisions of ideas.
I made a canvas print of my digital file and applied oil paint over it to give a hand made look.The final canvas painting is 12″wide x 13.25 ” high

This painting is about observing and recording a moment in time that will be constantly changing. Automobiles will change, businesses will change,and at the end of a day the Sun will set, as long as we still have a planet.

This photograph is from my series called “In a Box”.For this series I placed objects in a small cardboard box and cut a hole in in one side of the box. I placed a light outside of the box near the hole which was the light source for the objects. The camera was placed near the open side of the box.
