My latest painting: "Spirit of Women"

“Spirit of Women” 54” x 40” Oil on Linen

 This is a recent painting from my trip to Spain.  Two young women modeled for me in their medieval costumes. I had them pose on a hill that overlooked the wheat field in the town of Ayllon, Spain I liked the look, the mood and the expressions of the young women. That is what inspired me to paint this painting.

"Defiance"  

24" x 18"

In this pose I found that the expression in this model was just right for the story line of a peasant girl that is out to find water or wine.  I would like to think it was wine.

She is not your average peasant girl; she has an assuredness that defies the typical peasant girl and yet, there is a coyness about her.

After she finds the wine, I can see her going to the village for a night of dancing and fun.

I have entitled this painting "Defiance".
