I had the privilege of working with Jaime yesterday and started this new painting; we will be doing additional sittings to develop this work. I haven’t painted in oils in many years due to lack of appropriate studio space and it truly felt wonderful to return to my favorite medium.

This was Jaime’s first time as an art-model, but she has extensive experience as a photographer’s model. You may find her Facebook page here:


I hope you enjoy watching the transformation as the work evolves.
