WIP-Gordon-10.18.15On my easel – WIP of this pastel painting on sanded paper entitled “The Writer”. This is a close up of the face. Still have a lot to do to finish it, but enjoying the challenge. Not sure of the final size yet.

This is the beginning of a new series of work that I will be working on: “Studies in Gray”. I have always been fascinated by the spectrum of grays that make an image come out of the darkness into the light. I was always inspired by the old black and white movies, and how they created such exciting images.

The young man in this painting is our nephew, Gordon Asti, who is an actor/writer/artist in Hollywood. Check out his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/gordonja
