See You

oil on canvas

See you back here in a little while; probably something like 5 weeks.
There are a lot of changes, good and happy changes, swirling around for me right now, so I need to direct my energies towards that.

Please do check back with Room E Studio later this summer!

oil on canvas

I wish I could say this was a big piece, you know 72x57 or something, but I can't, at least not truthfully.

This came out of my "paint over"pile of canvases.
It was from a life drawing group years ago.

As if life drawing and painting isn't contrived enough, they had a belly dancer come in and sit (there is irony here) in full costume.
As  recall, she had a blue outfit on.

Rather than try to paint out the original bit, I prefer to riff off of what is there.

There are some more subtle colorations than this photo shows.  I may try to shoot it again
