The first is the model Kassamira. It is done in oils and measures 18x24 inches. I did it on the evening of March 21. Kassamira looked beautiful in the blue spotlight.
The second jpeg is of Eliza. It is also done in oils and measures 18x24 inches. I painted Eliza the following week on March 28. We painted her with the red light. The pose and set-up were inspired by the Matisse/Deibenkorn Show that is presently at SFMOMA.
