From Opera Date to Still Life....

This is the first painting I did containing my red shoes, red jacket, Valentines chocolates, etc.  It was juried into the Transitions exhibit at the Federation Gallery, April 9 - 21, 2013. 

Drawing Workshop.....

I did these two drawings (both unfinished) at a Noah Layne workshop held by Suite 'E' Life Drawing.  The first one is of model Christine (hair partially done) on white paper with hb and 2b pencil.  The second one is of model Coral, on gray paper with white pastel accents and hb and 2b pencil.  It was nice to be able to spend 3-4 hours on one drawing, and the models were excellent. 

After The Opera

I just completed this painting, "After the Opera".  It has some of my favourite high heels and red leather jacket from my closet, chocolates from Rubens, fabric from my extensive and out of control fabric collection, a program from the Vancouver Opera Romeo and Juliet, and an empty coffee cup (addicted to coffee).  It is 16 x 16 and acrylic on canvas.
