Diana in the blue dress and east LA
I had Diana back in my garden to sit for another session. It's all about arriving at a total finish to the painting, so I work to bring the entire piece up together, rather than focus on getting one spot "perfect" at the expense of the whole effect. I find Diana to be utterly beautiful, and I don't know if anything I might paint of her would do her justice. Nonetheless, she helps me to make new works of art and I love her for that! So here's a work in progress, there's a lot "wrong" with it but at the same time there's a lot "right"... 36 by 24.
Also, here's a sketch of another captivating location in east LA, this is the 710/60 interchange from the other side, at the corner of 3rd and Ford.
