Newest painting of a Redhead

I completed this painting a couple of days ago. I mailed it out to the person who commissioned it this afternoon. I think it is much more vibrantly colorful in real life.

An exhibit of Odilon Redon's Art at MOMA

Friday, 1/20, I had the pleasure of viewing an exhibit of Redon's work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

It was a fantastic exhibit!
I have always admired Redon's extremely unique vision.
Viewing his charcoal drawings and lithographs was especially interesting; these pieces are very eerie and strange and fantastical.

In this particular exhibit I found the works in black and white to be much stronger than the artwork in color.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed this exhibit immensely.

A day of gallery hopping in Chelsea, New York City

I had a very visually stimulating day today, as I visited about 20 art galleries in Chelsea.

I thoroughly enjoyed many of the artists' works that I saw.

I especially enjoyed viewing Deborah Butterfield's sculptures of horses, many of which are created from scrap metal.

I saw some fantastic realistic artwork as well as installation art and surrealistic portraits.

It was an energizing experience.

Adorable Nude with Heart Tattoo on Derriere

This painting was created with gouache on paper and is 10" x 8." I have been creating rear views of redheaded nudes for quite awhile. This particular figure exudes a sense of timelessness. I think I am influenced to some extent by ancient Egyptian sculptures.
