I finally made it to another open studio this weekend. It's been a while since I've painted from a model, it's great practice. Emily posed during The Palette and Chisel's open house, which if you came out Saturday thank you for leaving your house in the pouring rain. Another benefit of making it to an open studio is I was able to see their current show, Open House Chicago, there are some really nice pieces and it's healthy to get out of your own workspace for a while and see what other people are doing. The show features mainly Chicago themed works and will be up until October 22, stop by if you can!


Here is my study of Emily, it's 8''x 10'' oil on panel.
