Figure study...in oil.. 18 x24”   ...note the luminous shadows... its all about the “conversation of color”.  This new series is a return to my love of painting the figure....

“La Bastide” refers to the medieval fortresses of the 15th century in southern France... For my second painting, I have chosen Cordes Sur Ciel, depicted in the clouds with fields of sunflowers...

7/1/09   Carcassonne....rumor has it: this grand bastide inspired Disney to create his famous castle...its located a few hours drive east of Toulouse...and an hour or so north of Spain.......early morning painting in the studio--- laying in rich thin layers of dark pigments for shape and line...

... and “c’est fini!!”  TEN oil paintings....ready to hang and enjoy!

“Bon Apetit!”
