Jordan


The camera is a little blurry...or should I say the photographer is sleepy? I wasn't expecting the model to be fully clothed in costume. But it was a nice pose, music was great. I thought halfway there to bring soundtrack from Frida Kahlo, when Ellen, a new acquaintance had brought it! Really one of my favorites. So my first week back to life was costumed...with margaritas and a little guacamole and chips. I lost Jordan's face right away and decided, that yes it is more saleable when less depictive and I certainly have a more discreet nude to exhibit around less open minds.

Wonderful richness of you colors with the colored pencils lady. And a great piece.
So happy you were able to make it back.. I know how you love it and hard when you can't make it.

Doris,
This is one of my favorite pieces you've done. The lighting and rich colors are fabulous. I love her costumed, show me how great you are with depicting clothes.
I love Frieda Kahlo music, too. It's so passionate and full of fire. I see that passion in the image here. And less is more regarding the face, more mystery and intrigue.
Beautiful!!!!!
P.S. Will this be hanging at the Naperville Exhibit?
