Naked Lunch at Woodstock School of Art -Nude paintings by Gretchen Kelly


Works from this morning at the Naked Lunch studio session in Woodstock.



Nude #1260a 10"x13" watercolor, gouache, graphite on heather grey paper

Nude #1260b 10"x13" watercolor, gouache, graphite on heather grey paper

Today I traveled over to the Woodstock School of Art for a day of figurative work called "Naked Lunch". But no, I did not eat lunch in the buff. No one did, I am happy to report. There were two models in the  morning and two in the afternoon. I left a bit early because the afternoon was a loooong pose or else a male model....neither of which I am into. But, I did enjoy myself and got some nice paintings which you can see two of here....more to come.

The Little Apple poster!

Wow! Look! My Art is on the poster ....and the cover of the new Little Apple book designed by Holly Northrop- it looks super and I am so honored to have my work on the cover. There's also an interview by Cheryl Lickona with me inside the cover along with other local heroes like Lisa Durfee, Chris Freeman, and much more. The booklet will be released soon.

Flower Power Tulips by Gretchen Kelly


I love the SPRING and painting flowers fills me with light and I feel tuned in to these plants created by Mother Nature that grow from the Earth and the Sun.
