Oil Painting: Draped Figure

Posted on Updated on


I had planned to paint outdoors every day for the first week the girls were back at school, but the morning of Day 1 poor Holly woke up with a fever, and Meredith got sick soon after. Lasted over a week, so that’s how this painting began. They are both back to full health.

I worked on this while I did the two Sea Map paintings, and found it interesting how the waves of water and folds of fabric were similar in shape and logic, and in their fleeting nature. Each fold and break, each leaf shape and stem, has history and reasons for being.

This and ten other paintings will be on display at North Park University’s Johnson Center for the next few weeks.
