We are having a relatively warm day. It gives me hope that sunshine and warmth are on the horizon. We will be seeing scenes like this soon.

I saw this little girl in NYC last summer. I snapped her picture while she was pondering her decision at the pastry counter. I struggled with the light sources of cool, harsh light from the display case and the summer light coming from the window. She was delightful to paint. We can all relate to her excitement that makes her dance in her skin.

In my continuing quest to capture postures, I have painted a series of women at the beach. These are some of the 5x7's. This has been a good education on what NOT to wear to the beach, as well, as good practice in painting bodies.

Washington Square Park in New York City is one of my favorite places to people watch. I've found many subjects there. The secret is photographing very discreetly. It helps to have someone with you who will "pose" in front of your intended subject. These people were not really sitting together. I sat in one place and over the period of an hour photograph everyone who sat down. That's how they all came together on canvas.
