"Late Show Lights Out" by Gordon van Vliet

From the Monday Night Figure Series, by Gordon van Vliet

Here is a painting from the figure group on Monday nights at the Steve Carpenter Studio. I love painting with the artists on Monday night. Models don't come in better physical shape than this young man either. Just look at the great mahogany tones in his skin and feel the latent power.

From the title you can guess what is going on. He is close to sleep while listening to the late night ramblings of Dave Letterman, Jay Len or Conan. These guys help numerous people on our fair planet get to sleep and all cheaper than pills.

It is painted from life, not a photo reference. Gordon generally paints at least one painting a week and sometimes daily painting.

Thank you for looking. Artist retains all copyrights of the artwork.

Oil on canvas, it measures 10.25" x 8.25" Retail $169.00
Not a "daily painting", but close. If I ramp it up, I can be there again. If you are interested in framing, Michael can help you at The Framing Edge.

Well there it is! Two totally different reactions to "art". I always enjoy taking what is given and finding something interesting in it.

Thank D.
Thanks Susan.
