This original oil painting of a nude female figure was created on baltic birch, is archival and will last for generations. It is currently being carefully stored in my studio and can be shipped immediately. It measures 12" x 16" x .5" and is ready for framing.

I attend Life Drawing and painting sessions weekly, studying the figure from life is an age old tradition for artists, for students and professionals alike. Studying figures unclothed is vital to understanding human form and when a sense of character and spark of life is captured, the drawings and paintings become really lovely pieces of art.

This piece is one of my favorites from this time period. I like the weird poetry in her stance. Like she's feeding a bird, but she'd looking toward a shop light. It makes no sense, and so what? The night I made this it was someone else's turn to set the model - meaning to set the pose the model would be in for the night. When this other artist set this pose, I thought it was horribly stupid, and then surprise, surprise I made a painting I loved. Another indication that I don't know everything.

Well made original art lasts for generations and enriches lives!
