Repose

Repose   oil/canvas   8 x 24 x 1.5
is sometimes welcome.  Sometimes it is forced upon us.  The model in this work was languishing in the heat of summer.  But this week I felt great empathy for this pose....too much gardening...too much exercise...too much disregard for the limitations of my body.  BACK PAIN.  Forced repose.  Forced time away from the easel.  Luckily, my son is a physical therapist who has helped me out with suggested exercises and many many admonitions.  Can't wait to be vertical again.

I have always loved the loose expressiveness of this work.  Loose.  Yes.
