Moroccan Street Vendor -- SOLD

Yesterday was a dreadful, teary day for me so I decided the best thing to do would be to get into the studio and get to work! I took a photo of this street vender in the Casbah in Tagier last May. He was leaning against the wall with his foot up, waiting for tourists to meander down his way. In the Casbah, the streets (if you can call them that), are very narrow, often perhaps 4 or 5 feet wide at most. These long narrow passageways create some interesting scenes. This 18" X 36" canvas works perfectly. This happens to be the 3rd reincanation on this canvas! There are two more paintings beneath this poor guy! Hopefully this will be the last.

Kents Girl

My nephew is dating a lady and I loved her look. I have never met her and have only seen one real picture of her. I just thought she was very striking and reminded me of Mia Farrow - my daughter thinks she looks like Toni Collette - boy does that point out our age difference.

Jazz #4 - SOLD

I've been very lazy about getting into the studio. Yesterday I spent 3 hours in 40-ish degree weather working in the yard so today I forced myself. I varnished a couple of paintings and then picked up this one. (I've had it sketched out for months.) It's the last in the series I started some time ago. The next thing I knew it was 3:30 PM. I wanted to see all four of them hanging together but two are already at the gallery.
