Last painting of 2009


Here she is. (She needs a name). While you may have interrupted her sewing-- she doesn't mind. She really likes visitors.

For those who are interested in her make-up. This little oil exists on canvas and is made up of dozens of historical and modern techniques from impasto to glazing to dripping of liquid oil paint.

She and I wish you a rich and artful 2010.

Kimono in blue

Pastel on paper.

Western eyes and Eastern depth meet and combine.
We see so much and see so little.

Everything has meaning.

Kimono (Purity)

My charcoal study for a Kimono series, based on the concept of Shabui.  While this doesn't translate well, it deals with the paring down of things to their essence.  Purity.

As always your thoughts and insights are welcomed.
