Shown and sold at the 2005 Contemporary Realism Show, Center for Living Arts, Mobile, Alabama.  The use of wax medium (beeswax melted in turpentine) facilitates the more open treatment, allowing a watercolor like fluidity, while retaining the richness of oil.  It is good for a sketch feel while you are working.  This is my wife and favorite model for over a quarter of a century, the artist Jen Cart. sold to private collection
