The Siren's Day Off, Oil on Canvas, 24" x 30" $1200 SOLD to a collector in Vermont
Happily I've returned to painting after the stuff of life forced me to put my art aside. I'm quite pleased with this one as I can see I have a better understanding of anatomy. I love the voluptuousness of the body, and the twists and angles of the pose. When starting a painting, I always find the pose first, then create a story to support it. It seemed a fun idea to show a mythological Siren on a day off, not at her weekday work of luring sailors into the rocks. Lucky fellows sailing by!
