Here is my result from our Monday evening model sessions. Rick Graham normally has it, but since he is out playing around on the sun shinning coast of California, Bryce Liston took over at his studio. Thanks Bryce for stepping up to the plate!

The model thought a pose out of the ballet “Carmen” would be interesting, the story about a beautiful woman working at a cigarette factory in Seville. "L'amour est un oiseau rebelle"…. Love is a rebellious bird, the main character responds as she walks out of the factory with cigar in hand and all the men of the town eyeing her.

Actually it’s usually a cigarette in the ballet, but the cigar looks bigger.

Any ways she had the cigar and black dress and sat down on the couch. There was the painting. And I know that none of the galleries would be able to sell this kind of subject matter. But I do have to admit it was a fun painting to work on.

This morning I was working on the horse painting again, just fixing up small detailed areas that most people wouldn’t even notice. So I figured it wasn’t worth an image of.
