Back of a woman's neck
oil on canvas

Obviously this painting was not done in one day. I actually completed this painting last spring, but haven't really shown anyone.... so, wala!
This painting was done from life over many sittings and the model is my good friend Dianna Mckee. I have been a little reluctant to show it because as I was working on it I realized how much it resembled a painting by my teacher (Nelson Shanks). I didn't set out to do that, it just sorta happened... I recognize now that I was thinking of his painting while I was composing this one. Despite any resemblance, I feel I made it my own.
