I referenced an image of Jon Heder in his role as Napoleon Dynamite for this work. In response to last night's presidential address to congress, I imagine Napoleon would say something like: "What a faker. He's still taking away my health care. He hates Pedro. And when's he gonna show his flippin' taxes? Gosh!"

I referenced I photo I took of flowers that I bought a couple of weeks ago from my local florist, Lavenders Flowers. I put three white flowers and a lavender rose into a jelly jar and took a down shot of this grouping.

I referenced a photo by The New Yorker for this work. Just love seeing his cute little head peeking above the water and the upper portion of his majestic body visually shattered by the wave of the water.

I referenced a photo by @panandthedream for this work. Such curiosity, such innocence, such tenderness in each of the steps of this little girl.

I actually like to brush and floss ... but not as much as I love to rinse with the intense burn of Listerine, which I didn't include in the still life composition for this work.

I used two tea cups and a spoon from our kitchen to reference for this work. And incredibly, the more I practice painting still life, the better I paint faces. And the more I paint flowers, the better I paint dogs in water. And so on. A good reminder that lessons about this thing here are sometimes found way over there.

This is the second demo painting I made while teaching today, born out of my demo about how I approach figure drawing, which is always with the breasts then torso. Once that happens, everything else falls into place, including little black dresses. The sentiment is one that I feel so much lately, especially after having watched the documentary titled Minimalist ... about living a richer life by consuming less.

This is the demo painting I made while teaching a private painting lesson today. I referenced a photo from the @freepeople catalogue and rather than do my usual drawing by using grids, I didn't use any grids at all and allowed myself to get abstract, exaggerated and kinda magical. So much fun.

This is my demo painting from today's private painting session that I taught. I've referenced this subject before for a painting ... such a beautiful dog doing his paddle. There is always so much to learn when practicing subjects that are partially submerged in water.

I woke up determined to make two paintings today. For this second work of the day, I practiced what I teach when I teach portrait work, which is to find ways to have the subject there, but not there.

It's all about accurate proportions with an economy of strokes that make the subject not so explicitly there but expressively and emotionally there. Not easy but something I love.
