Portrait in Progress

I decided to paint a portrait of this Haitian man I came across.  I love his expression and the worn wrinkles on his face.. It's just so natural, and different than anything I have ever painted, so I'm having fun with this one!

Commission in Progress

Reference Photo

I am currently working on this commissioned piece.  It's going to be a gift to my clients husband for their anniversary and his birthday..  They took this photo while on a trip together.  She says that they stopped to photograph the doe feeding on the grass, and before the picture was snapped, up walked the buck front and center!  Couldn't have been better timing on this one.

Wendy's Sunflowers

Wendy's Sunflowers
11 x 14

I was inspired to paint these sunflowers for my mother-in-law Wendy.  Sunflowers are her most loved flowers, which I'm sure is because they are a very warm, and cheerful flower, just like she is.  This painting worked out really great for mothers day.  I had some prints made up and gave one to all of the special women in my life.. Thank you Wendy for your inspiring warmth, love, and cheerful attitude about life!
