The reason I love this series of Women in White, is because as you shall see, white is anything BUT white! It is a great discipline to train one's eyes to see all the colors that white can take on as it's own character!

I remember back in my first weeks of art school, my instructor
Mr Joseph Morgan Henninger, asked me, as he sat on my bench, if I could see the raw sienna under the model's chin. Being tired of always replying "no", I said "yes" and he turned around so excited, that I had finally "opened my eyes".

Well, that was the beginning of years of learning. And one must remember, we NEVER quit learning...when we do, we'll be planted 6 feet under!
And if we're not, we may as well be!


Keeping with the spirit of things
the following is also shared with you!

Also, I never list another artist's web site, but I am making an exception!

"TO THY OWN SELF BE TRUE"...

should be the basis of painting from your soul
(which has always been my philosophy,
more important than any sales, or any approval!)
...and to understand this, a friend of mine, Tom Clements,
has shared a great deal from his "soul"...
