This is a photo of my latest endeavor, a still life. It took quite a bit of time to arrange the objects but it took much longer to set up the lighting.

Just recently I had the pleasure to sit for a portrait painting class. Sitting for the class reminded me of my beginnings in the art field. Before I began painting I was a portrait model. The transition from portrait model to art student to artist seemed only natural. This transition ultimately changed my life and enriched it beyond measure. Here are some pictures taken after the portrait painting class. The garb that I am wearing is a dress that was picked up by a relative who was on a business trip in Sinai, Egypt. I was told that the dress was made by one woman who constructed the dress and embroidered it by hand. The estimated time frame to complete such a dress was approximately two weeks. The dress is rare and is over 20 years old. The jewelry pieces are antiques from the Sinai and India.
