young female model oil on canvas 16 w x 20 h

This oil on canvas painting was created in the 1980’s and was painted from a model with other illustrator friends of mine. Most of this painting was completed during a two and a half hour session. I just removed it from a storage closet last week. I still like this painting.

past,chair and drawin board

Like the movie “A Christmas Carol” I will visit my past present and future life as an illustrator in my blog posts. This is a photo of a chair I bought from J.C. Penny during the 1960’s and a drawing board purchased during the 1960’s. Hundreds of drawings, illustrations and paintings were created, by me, using this chair and drawing board. This is the angle of the drawing board that I prefer. On the drawing board is a painting of a model from life that I will complete in the future.
