The Model and Elizabeth Taylor

Another vacation painting!  After capturing the view from our rented house in Ibiza a few times I reverted to fashion magazines as the source of some new inspiration.

Tree of Life

This recent pen & ink and watercolor painting, done in Ibiza while on vacation, seemed an appropriate entry for Illustration Friday's word "Perennial."  The tree is not only a perennial plant, the subject of the tree as a symbol for life is a perennial subject.  One of my favorite Tree of Life paintings is by Gustav Klimt.

Nuri, Roy and Liz in Ibiza

The highlights of Nuri Barata's dark brown hair gleamed red/orange in the July sun while she posed in the pool.  It had been 6 years since my last visit to Ibiza in 2005 when I did quick sketches of Roy and Liz and 14 years since Nuri last modeled for me.  It's amazing how quickly time disappears when you go back and visit a familiar place.  When I was there it felt as if I had just been there the day before but now that I'm back home it feels like it was just a dream.
