I've been lucky this year to attend open studios where the models have maintained the same pose for several weeks at a time. This is a head study of the beautiful (and professional and athletic) art model Isis. It started out as strictly an exercise, but over time became quite appealing. In the end, I decided to frame it and put it up for sale on my Gallery page. If you can't see the slideshow in your blog reader or e-mail, click here to visit my website.
