Light at Night

Gosh, it has been a long time! I decided to go ahead and post a piece that I did earlier this month from a photo taken many years ago. This building has changed and is multicolored now. Fewer lights, too.
Oil on canvas.

Always being challenged, I accepted a commission to do this portrait as a surprise gift. The client asked for a softer, more atmospheric quality than I usually have in my work. The client is happy! Hope the recipient will be, too.

Interior / still life

This piece was done very loosely and with the intention of capturing the sparkle in the silver and the warmth of the table. Oh and if I could pass on the fragrance of the freesia..... 12x12" oil on linen

Latest Project

Sometimes it is good to have multiple projects going at the same time. Well, it also might get a bit overwhelming, too. Right now, I'm juggling a few; I've got 3 commissions lining up and a project with my mentor.

This photo is from the project with my mentor. I'm stretching myself and doing a full length portrait with a complicated background. Wayne was the model for the reference photos. The painting still has a lot of work to be done on it, but I like where it is going. Huge, least for me. 36"x 48" oil on canvas, and barely fits on my easel.
