i painted this 3-15-09 it's from an egyptian stone carving. i think that i was a male figure but i couldn't tell. i made it a female. it is the fisrt coat of paint. i didn't paint the sky yet. i will wait until it drys. it's best to paint the background first but i just got into painting the figure as if it was coming alive. to think that someone did carve that image into stone around 5,000 years ago and i sat there and in an artful way did as he did, but with paint 5,000 years later.

this i painted 3-13-09. oil on canvas 20 by 24 inches. it was painted from a carving in stone from a photo i took in egypt. it was only of the face. it's hard to tell if it is male or female. i added neck, head drape. and color. it is only the first coat of paint and face color will be changed after it drys.
