Update 3/20/2011

Fixed the problem….or maybe I’m now going around my elbow…etc.  Heh.  Anyway, here are the sketches.  Wow, it feels good to have figured it out (and this was by blind luck and insane (my only kind) logic).

Alright, that last post didn’t allow my pics to show.  I’ll give it another try here.  First, I’ll let you know, I’m in the process of revamping my website  I’m hoping to have it done by the first week of March.

I’m in the midst of a series of oil paintings.  So far 3 are complete, with 2 more on the easels, another lightly sketched in on canvas, and several (not sure how many) that will follow.  They revolve around female nudes with lit candles inside the heads.  This is a concept that I began playing with 2 months ago,then it took hold of my mind and I have been working steadily on them since.   I’ll show some sketches now.

That’s it for tonite.  More soon.  I swear I’m getting better at this.
