Long Day

I am very luck to have a daughter who plays along with me and will be my model. My favorite poses are the ones in which she stops posing and just relaxes. She flops herself down and suddenly there is the painting! Tonight, she and some friends will be my models in a new Restaurant in the city called Fresca. If all goes well, tomorrow’s blog will be a restaurant scene.

  1. This is such a great one of Alex. I am also really looking forward to the one done at Freska! It was also wonderful to hear all of the great news today! Things are going to keep happening quickly for you. So exciting!

  2. Hi Christine,

    This is so great. The colour, texture and mood are so evocative. You are a wonderful, wonderful painter.

    Take care,


  3. Beautifully done Christine. I really love how her eyes are peeking over her arm this way. Great mood shot.

  4. Thank you, Ann for post and for following this whole adventure. Fresca was great fun and the owner, Victor is pretty amazing...but more about that later when I paint of that place.

    Barbara! Thank you so much for all of your comments. It made me very glad to read them when I got in last night. Would love to see your work live!

    Hey Art...the mood was so Alexandra! She is an easy model to paint. I am lucky to have her!
