The Model a painting



Dear Art Lover,
     Part of the time spent in my former home and studio in central Texas has been spent painting.  I have so many unfinished works or sketches in both 2-d and 3-d that I still want to finish. 

     Many years ago I was interested in experimenting with marble dust on canvas, sculpting it a big at times to get a more 3-d effect on a painted work on board or canvas.  That was how I started this new painting “The Model.”

     I have a mysterious art supporter who occasionally sends me things of interest.  If memory serves, he either sent me the film on tape of “The Model” or wrote to me about it.  In any event, this French film inspired the pose and the idea for this painting.  It records the moment of “unveiling” and I hope to have captured something of those mixed feelings one may have of anticipation, shyness, confidence, appreciation, and so many more things that often happen in an instance before the work begins.
