Mother and Daughter Jocks, Day 1

I had a great time in the studio today beginning my newest painting, Mother and Daughter Jocks.  It's a very fun piece of two women who seem so comfortable in their nude bodies and with each other.  I am delighted by the process of painting it!

Today I painted the background and laid in the shadows.  It's funny how it looks - like I have white cutouts of them in front of the background against which they're throwing a shadow.  I kinda like it at this stage too!  I'm very excited to work on this piece because I like the image so much.  I keep imaging it in the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery!
