Back To Selfies
An art patron is planning a studio visit later in the month, and I'd like to have a couple of the new paintings a little further along for him to see. So I've been concentrating on Selfies, For Rent, and The Gauntlet lately. Selfies is starting to shape up.

While down in the basement studio, I also put in some time on:

I redrew the shoulder and backbone areas, but now the color's off. Also, the stomach should be rounder. Searched for the old reference files and amazingly, found them in a box of slides. They'll be useful in reworking the thistle and the fence post on the right; I think the thistle needs more color contrast, and the fence post should e a little darker.
