New oil painting 8x10 is from a 1977 sketch of friend Jenny Paradies.  Above composite includes a head & enlarged heels.  Seems a perfect picture for Halloween!

Pink Beast

I was painting over a crummy earlier oil painting when this pink beast appeared!  Where he came from I do not know.  Under the beast are four bad portraits I did of fully, or partially, veiled Saudi Arabian women.  I'm intrigued why any woman would agree to cover up her entire body to the top of her head - especially when it feels so good to allow a breeze to softly blow your hair on a beautiful day.  Oil on canvas board 16x20

Blue Squares

It's raining today.  The 7 pale numbers in this new 8x10 oil on canvas painting, inspired by Bauhaus, spell out how I feel about the rain. The pale numbers are scrambled.  Organize them to find the missing word.
Hint:  A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, L=12, O=15, V=22, Z=26
