Oil on linen mounted on board
6" x 8"

I am trying to touch all the bases while my creative juices are flowing freely so I have been maneuvering from one genre to the next - oysters, dogs and cats and people, to keep it fresh and exciting.  It has been a while since I pushed flesh around and this little sketch allowed me to play with the limited "Zorn" palette again.  Laid down in about an hour, it was refreshing to paint something that was not too tedious.  It may not be the "Girl with the Pearl" but it was fun.

I am quite taken with the contrast of darks and lights and the composition is perfect
