Fleeting

"Fleeting"  oil on canvas, 18x24"
I always felt this wasn't ever 'finished', and I was wanting to do more to it somehow.. I put it aside, time went by.. and somewhere along the line, I saw it differently.

This is a painting from life.  The model is Shondra Dawson. I always love painting her, and this pose in particular was inspiring to me. She held that - a standing pose, with her hands like that - for the duration of the pose, and it still felt natural, and as if it were a brief moment caught in time, a fleeting moment. She's awesome.
