Figure in a Blue Light

Oil paint over black and white grisaille.

This is a painting of my favorite all-time model,
Sharon. She never fails to inspire. I love this image
so much, I actually did another version of it in another
color scheme. That may seems strange - until you look
at Degas. Not that I am comparing myself  to that
19th C. Master, who is one of my idols.  But, he did
literally recycle poses and positions of models from
one painting or drawing to another. It's fascinating.
He was the most modern painter of his group, no doubt.
History will show this to be true as time goes on.

Thanks for visiting today.
