the creation of this paintingThe figure in this painting posed for a Studios photo shoot during the summer of 2008. The figure, the plant material, and the lighting derive from that shoot.

Posing a figure for a work like this involves the kind of interaction typical of that between a motion picture director and an actor... Read more »
