Well 2010 is off to a great start, lots of snow to paint and to collect great refernce for new paintings, both landscapes and sporting images during this coming year.
I hope everyone enjoyed a trouble free and Happy Christmas and New Year. Not too many hangovers I hope, they can be a drag.
I was not idle over the holiday time, I was out in the ice and snow taking shots and sketching for new images.
I also painted a nude from older reference taken a few years ago . I rediscovered the reference and decided to paint the current image. The painting is called 'Bathed in Morning Light' and is oil on canvas 12" x 16".
It is the first painting not only of the new year, but also the first to carry my new signature. I have thought for a long time that I wanted it to be less conspicuous in the painting, so as of this year all my paintings will show just Apps and the date with the copyright mark as I have always done.
Well, as always I invite your thoughts and comments about my work, they are welcome.
I hope that you like this painting. I hope to paint more nudes as soon as I find a new model that I am able to work with.
