I had the chance to do a little painting this last week for myself. I had recently done a shoot with a friend and oft muse, Sara. I think she’s a fascinating beauty (inside and out) and she always has great depth in her expression.
I call this painting Desidero, which can be translated to desire, want, or longing. I imagine the character in the painting dealing with a sense of loss. It is a small painting, at 6″x9″ and is on a linen panel from Artefex. It was a lovely surface to paint on.
I’m going to develop this further into a larger life-sized painting.
Sara has beautiful, almost translucent skin that varies greatly in temperature. Here is a time-lapse of the painting from start to finish:
The music in the video is by my daughter, Belle Jewel, who is a wonderfully talented singer and songwriter. I’m going to shamelessly plug her Patreon she just started. You can get some beautiful music and support an excellent artist! Here is a link
Thank you for giving my post a view! You can find more of my art and instructional videos via the links at the end of this post,

I always love watching you work. And your daughter’s music! <3
That is beautiful and your daughter’s voice is amazing. Was that background circle thing something you made up or did you have reference for it?
Your art, Howard, are always delight’n’enjoyment. They are multiplied by the beauty of your daughter’s voice this time! It became an excellent tandem.
