The Zoom model today sat in her chair in a restless sort of way. Her arms and hands were relaxed but her shoulders were tense as though she were thinking through a to-do list. I accentuated her uneven shoulders to try to convey this feeling.

One of my Zoom friends from Fresno suggested I look at David Park’s paintings. I was able to get two books about his life and work through our curbside pickup library program. At the end of his short life he did some amazing paintings in gouache and I hope to absorb some of his approach in my own paintings.
