Inspired by Manet

For tonight's workshop we'll have our model in a matador costume. As I was browsing through all my options I saw the matador labels and thought of the painting by Manet. So, if you can make it I think you'll be in for a treat.

FIW on the road!

On Friday the 19th I'll be painting from a live costumed model at the Museumathon event at the Kenosha Public Museum. Part of the event is to celebrate the Fantastic Worlds Exhibit; Masters of Science Fiction and Fantasy Art in which I have a panting on display.

The event is free! I hope you can make it.
