I referenced an image by @fatholahi for this work. On my mind were the junior high-ish girls I had the chance to talk with and mentor today at my alma mater: UC Irvine. As I asked them about their future goals I found myself advising them to be wary of the whole "do what you love" concept ... because something you dread now ... upon effort and practice could become something you love deeply.

I am beguiled by everything @louschoof ... her effortlessly sensual, achingly provocative and intriguing ways. I consider her a muse not just for some of my paintings but my pursuit for all of those things in all of my ways. I took a screen capture of one of her recent videos where her fingers were dancing on a wall ... and referenced that screen capture for this work ... which conjured up these lyrics by #thebeatles:

Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will

I will

I referenced an image of myself as captured by @narcissusholmes for this work. The capture happened in my studio where I was directed to look into a mirror and look at the mirror, not the camera. It was awkward at first but I finally got the hang of it. Anyway, Loved the dramatic contrast of the image, which still gave me plenty of challenges in terms of expressing all the nuances and undulations that exist in the human figure.

I referenced an image of Maria Elena as captured by @narcissusholmes for this work. Things that were floating in my thoughts as I worked on this ... to practice an economy of strokes in my pursuit of expressive suggestion of features rather than explicit illustration of them. My work in my current life season, I suppose.

I referenced image by @fatholahi of @anastasiyascheglova for this work while singing this by #ediebrickell ...

I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

This is my demo work from the private painting session I taught today, referencing a photo of the person's friend who came in for the session. Painting a subject oriented sideways had many challenges! We both learned a whole lot in the process. Wonderful day.

I referenced a photo by @fatholahi of @_shademaneh for this work. Can you tell my palette colors are changing a little? That's because they are.

I started this demo painting during a private painting session that I taught today in the studio today. I've used this flower as a reference for several paintings in the past ... it's a great one to use to teach how to paint flowers. Once I brought it home, I ended up adding the window with an outside scene to transform the final result. I like it quite a bit.

I bought a bag of rainier cherries from my local grocery store yesterday, put three on one of my plates and referenced them for this work. So delicious to eat and so fun to paint!
