Old World Style figurative painting

Another figure painting with casein.  

I did this painting a long time ago when I was often working with casein pigments.  It works so well with this "old world" style.  I came across some of my old sketch books and also found some photographs of  my earlier work.  I can't remember the title I gave her, but I just really enjoyed painting these figurative pieces.  Back in the day....I painted a lot in this style for the art company I worked for.  An idea or a pose would be taken from one of the "old masters" and then incorporated into a new "old world" style  painting.   It was part of my training I guess, and I loved doing it.  I am currenly working extra hard and long as I am preparing for the next Celebration of Fine Art show which opens in January 2010.  It is such a fabulous show to be a part of, bringing 100 artists together from all over the country to exhibit and work together for the ten week show.   I am also working as a part time art consultant right now and am dividing my time between the gallery job and my own painting.  As I am moving into a more detailed and realistic style of painting, each one can be quite time consuming, so I will occasionally post some of my earlier works until I complete my new series.  If you are interested in reading a little bit about the Celebration of Fine Art show you can see the web page at:    This year will be the 20th anniversary of that show, and it will be my 5th year participating.  I can hardly wait, however I have so much to do before it opens.
