Portrait and Plein Air Studies








Chicago winters tend to be quite gray so the few days I've ventured outside to paint the landscapes have been sunny days. I am really struggling with understanding edges. These are 14"x11" plein air oil studies.
I am still enjoying escaping the cold for the Palette and Chisel where there is always a model to paint. I'm showing two 20"x16" which are more successful than others.

Hi Susan! These are really lovely! I can see you have been working diligently! Somehow I have dropped you from my email list. I hope your show was successful. I'm busy here in MI, starting my gallery and teaching studio. And painting up a storm!
