Finished Works for July 16th show... at Gallery Provocateur in Chicago!!



"Nelli Scarlet in Red"  36" x 24"

Nelli Scarlet is all about personallity, punk leather, chains and attitude of a fun stage singer//performer// and Rock Star!!! Nelli is the super sexy bomb shell lead singer of the "Scarlets" (They were the opening act for Bonjovi on his recent tour of Europe) 

I truely wanted to capture her bad ass attitude!! Red and Black are all about power and control and this 5'10" vixen has all of that and is also the photographer of this self portrait.

"These Boots"

Model: Veronika Kotlajic

"Feather Dancer"

Model: Veronika Kotlajic

"Ah OoH" 24" x 30" (Need to find who model is... X-Playmate)

This painting is my idea of pure sexuality, subtle yet, NO mistake about what is going on at all ;) Her hand and finger positions on the couch as a means of support, her facial expression shows and tells everything, a woman not afraid of pleasing herself. I wanted the back ground to be vibrant as if an extension of her mental excitement and yet calming colors of light and growth. Her hair, the couch and her lips are on fire with red and orange mixed to represent her inner feelings of ecstasy.

"Tea Flowers" 33.5" x 24"

working on Playboy Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair!!


Here's my painting of Claire Sinclair hanging in Belgium at the Pinup Expo Gallery:


 So excited to work on a painting of Claire Sinclair via photographer Michael Malak, This painting is 24" x 30" and going to "The Pinup Expo Gallery" in Belgium,!!! As soon as it's finished...

I start by blocking in a quick sketch that I get from the black and white photo. (I am a painter)


then block in the shape with a hard round brush:

More blocking as well as checking lighting...

I love to really work out the detail of the face and continue to hone the shapes ... early on, it keeps you inspired that the painting will be beautiful, also blocking in the back ground light source with giant loose brushes help the feeling of where this is going!!  hahaha!!!!! xoxo

Adding some trial color at this point and fixing the skin texture to be smoother and making sure her shapes are not getting blob like.

working out most of the skin issues, I add a very thin layer of color, to the black and white painting I just did to give it that colorized, rosy cheeks, old time photo look... (still a work in progress but coming along :))))

Adding more light, jewels and trying a warm vs cool side to add more depth to the piece ;) Hopefully fixed the glove, hahaha!!! Thanks for watching and so glad I have a new fan!!! Welcome!

Hi and finished :)))))))) 

So excited to work on a painting of Claire Sinclair named "Sinful"

via photographer Michael Malak,

This painting is 24" x 30" and going to "The Pinup Expo Gallery" in Belgium!!!
