This painting has a lot of texture as it's been through many changes. I also drew and colored with water-soluble crayons on top of the acrylic paint. Long ago I started with the pose which I loved because of the relaxed slump of the body. I've finally found a story for her.

This is a study I did recently from a model wearing a buttercup yellow shirt and head scarf. I loved painting her face and the folds of fabric in her shirt and scarf. Happily, I was able to abbreviate things a bit and not get stuck on all the details I saw.

I have no idea where this idea came from. I simply wanted to picture three nude women dancing or at play - and the dove appeared. This is mostly an experiment painting flesh and using odd but interesting color choices overall.

I started out making a color wheel with oil paints - blobs of color in the order of a prism or rainbow. They seemed like flowers so I added an imagined woman's face behind them, as if she were wearing the floral colors. I love working in oil again.

Clearly I love Picasso and thought it would be fun to try painting in his style, or one of his many painting explorations that with time were described as a style. I love his use of lines and his portraits of women. Hence this piece that I drew over an abstract painting on paper. This one is small but I'd love to do another version 3 or 4 times the size on canvas rather than paper!

At first I painted the flowers somewhat realistically. But looking it a few months later, I decided to paint them abstractly to give the garden a sense of color and exuberant growth. I think this contrasts nicely with her mood of stillness and reflection.

All the layers are acrylic but I used colored pencil on the top to model this figure. The surface of the painting is lively because of all the cross-hatched pencil strokes of color. I like the sense of calm and privacy. I also like the slight confusion about who is inside. Is it the bird or the woman? I think of the roses as wallpaper, but they could be real and outside on a trellis.

I have no idea how she ended up out West, but the diagonal line of red with black seemed like a tent flap.  So why the iron railing from a balcony in Provence? Maybe it's reminding her of that day she foolishly gave up a modeling gig for Matisse.
