Redhead, 10x8, 8/7/09 $150

Our model today was a redhead named John.  I tried to paint with blockish strokes of value and color.  The jury is still out on this one.   Afterwards I went out to the National Hot Rod show which has about 13,000 cars from 1948 or before.    I try to go every year.   I love them.  Ahh...maybe in another life.

Sunrise, 6x6, 8/6/09 $100

OOPS!   I painted this yesterday, photographed it, downloaded it to my computer, named it, got distracted and never posted it.   So here it is.   The whole set up was simple, not very many colors but some subtle color and value changes.   They look like they're mesmerized, like zombies.   Sorta like some people are before coffee in the morning.
