Almost Ready Fine Art by artist Jim Richards - Description: This is a painting of one of my favorite models, Stephanie. It is a 3/4 view from her back, looking to the right with one hand behind her head and the other arm/hand down across her body. Stephanie had a dancing/ballet background and agreed to pose for me when I was living in Spokane, Washington, for a short time. I enjoyed her calm demeanor, which made for a number of quiet and restive paintings.

Arm in Arm - A Study Fine Art by artist Jim Richards - Description: This is sketch for a larger painting entitled "Arm in Arm". It is on a white background with two different colored sleeves and hands. The concept behind the painting is that of timeless brotherhood. The original reference material was from a single person at rest, but it also suggested getting a grasp on things or best of all an old fashion gesture of friendship. I wanted to stress this by creating hands of different people to stress the importance of bonding.
