The Snow Queen- 30x40, oil on canvas, 2007

Sorry I haven’t been as active lately! I’ve been sick, but finally feeling better. Wanted to post an oldie but a goodie: this was my first painting in oil back in college. 

This has a nice little back story too. Once upon a time, my mother taught this model how to skate, and my grandmother taught her ballet. Flash forward about 15 years or so and she is one of the most popular art models around. In 2004 and 2006, she played the Snow Queen in an unforgettable dance theater production called “Musee des Femmes” by the troupe Desert Sin. I was so impressed by the whole thing, and Cassandra graciously posed for my first photoshoot, which became this painting. 

It took me a while to do, because I was still learning at the time, and I was learning not only how to paint but how to see color. Of course I could do better now and someday I’ll probably do a new version, but for now there’s this. 

It should be noted, because it was amazing, that this version of her costume (there was another, which allowed for easier warm-up) featured a dress that pulled back to reveal dangling frozen, glowing hearts inside. I’ll never forget it.
