Sun dress & long hair 11"x14" oil

I am not sure how successful this one is but here it is anyway.   The part (no pun intended) I think is the most successful is the hair.

Contemplation 14" x 11" oil

This pose was hard for the model to hold so she posed in 15 minute segments.   I love where the warm light meets the shadow side which left a blueish terminator edge (where the light and shadow each terminate, it has nothing to do with Arnold).

Spring in a jar 6"x6" oil

I had a hard time getting the paint thick enough to lay on the surface.   The new cadmium yellow had too much oil in it so I put it on a piece of towel paper to absorb the excess.   Once it was a little stiffer it worked fine.  I had to stand back from this to see if it was working.    They look like two best friends holding their own... side by side.

Kentucky Bourbon, Trader Joe style 6"x6" oil

Trader Joe's Kentucky Bourbon is very good and if you know anything about Trader Joe then you will know that they went around to the big name Bourbon manufacturers here in Kentucky and made a contract with them to supply them with their own bourbon, bottle and label.     And... they sell it at a great price!    It is a great value for their customers.    I love the round bottle.    I guess I would have to have a taste test to see what brand it is closest to... unless someone out there already knows...
