This blog will follow the process of my current project: a series of three 5' x 9' figure paintings called "The Feast of Venus". I'll be posting the preliminary drawings and oil sketches as I complete them, and possibly add some commentary along the way. I have just begun this project and am working on the first painting in the series which has the working title "Stirring the Pot".

I decided to focus first on the group of three women working on soup, since this idea captured my imagination the most powerfully.

I work from my imagination and, with the aid of a mirror, often use myself as a model. The mirror is particularly useful when I need to study the position of a hand or the details of a pose.
