I enjoyed incorporating Matisse's painting of dancers into this still life of a rose. The movement of the figures seems to work well with the bowl and flower.

I love the process of drawing so here I drew over the brushed oil paint with oil pastels. It's a very messy process but exciting. When I first posted this painting the woman was sitting beside what appeared to be a large fireplace. The window makes a bit more 'sense' - whatever that might be within an imagined world.

The colors were a struggle on this one but now they work well to suggest a sizzling summer day. Time to slather on the sun lotion.

Here's a second version of an earlier painting. I always loved the pose but could get the other elements of color, detail and composition to work. Now she has weight and really seems to asleep.
