What is this? An Update on the New Painting

Sep 23, 2023

I have started a large figurative painting. It has been waiting for its turn on the easel. I gave a little hint last week. Remember this one?

INSIDE my studio this week, I started something big that I have been wanting to paint for a very long time. My new motto: “If not now, when? Let’s go!” Only one person seeing this little hint will know exactly what I am painting. Please don’t give it away just yet - especially to the model. Thanks!

Here are some details I can share.

Hope you enjoy this new jigsaw puzzle. It is another detail of the new painting.


I never know when a painting will be finished, but will be sure to show it to you when this one has been completed. : )

Thank you for your interest in my work. I enjoy sharing it with you.


Socially Speaking….

I briefly describe the paintings you receive each week on videos you can find on YouTube under Playlists. For the Pinterest enthusiasts, I have posted them there also. Little by little I am rebuilding my platform – better. Thanks for sharing. It’s going good.

    Hey Michel this is the first time I was able to do one of your puzzles, and I loved it! I have been opening my emails on my IPhone and until you told me that the reason I couldn’t do the puzzles because I needed to open them on my ipad.

    After I finished the puzzle I went back to your painting and enjoyed seeing the different pieces and where this piece belonged.

    Always love your paintings and your emails, but now I look forward to doing the puzzles too!
