"Vanitas 16" started

I have been working on a new graphite drawing "Vanitas 16". I am trying to finish this before the end of August. This one has a triangular composition. My model Julie is lying at the top of the picture stretching across the picture plane horizontally, and I am going to place a cracked raw egg at the bottom center.

It took me a while to find a right object to go with this drawing. The idea of using a feather came to me a few days ago and it just felt right, so I went with it.

Vanitas 15 work in progress (07-12-2018)

Last week I started a new Vanitas drawing. This is #15. All in graphite. I have not completely figured out all the visual elements yet and am still looking for a right object to place in this image.

Inside & Out: Vanitas show

I am going to be a part of a group show by Ohio Art League called, "Inside & Out: Vanitas" at Griffin Gallery, Gahanna, OH. When they announced this juried show, I thought it was just perfect to show my Vanitas pieces. So I entered and got 2 pieces accepted. Below are those pieces and the DM they designed using an image of one of my pieces.
