Statement VIII

This one is my photographer friend Jillian who took the reference shot for Statement I. During a different shoot for reference photos I noticed she was wearing a white shirt while I saw her reviewing photos. I asked to include her in this series, and here she is!

Taking a Statement

This started from a detail of Statement VII (the doctor): specifically, a close-up view of his hands jotting down notes. This caught the eye of our friends Kevin and Allison as they both work in writing/journalism and they inquired about a commission.

Statement VII

Since starting the Statement series I’ve been on the lookout for interesting variations on white fabrics. It occurred to me that there are a few occupations that include uniforms or articles of clothing that fit the bill.

Statement VI

Got this lovely late afternoon shot for the latest painting, part of the Statement series.

Statement V

Dave is a connoisseur of bowties and has written an eBook all about them. He had this great photo for the cover, so in exchange for borrowing it for a painting, I created a few layout options for the cover.

Statement IV

The Statement series is mostly individuals, but this lovely pose was too good to pass up.

Statement III

A friend of mine has this neat leather motorcycle jacket, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to paint a different type of material.

Statement II

Another figure & fabric Statement exploration, this time where the drape of fabric comes from the surroundings.

Statement I

I’m starting a series of paintings to explore two things I’ve wanted to work at more: figures and fabric.
