New Paintings: Stacey and Sara

40x60 inches on canvas.

The little yellow sticker to the right of 'David' has the reference number 9 on it. Is that interesting to anyone? ;)

Background ideas and richness of color...

Sometimes I stare at this Sari and wish that I had the ability to paint it the way Vermeer might have. Even though I may be lightyears away from painting that way, I'd still like to try to use it as inspiration for the background in an upcoming set of portraits.
