Ellie II

Last painting of 2014. I finished off this year with one I feel good about. Here's hoping 2015 will be a year of making big strides in my painting efforts, and for any other painters out there I hope you paint great paintings and sell every last one.

God bless.

Best and Brightest

Not that I'm either of those things, but I do feel very honored to have my recent painting "Bailey" accepted into the Scottsdale Artists School juried show of the same name. It was nice seeing my painting up on their website along with all of the other entrants which you can see here.

Elizabeth Redux

I thought I'd try another go around of this same pose of Elizabeth from BayArts. This one is definitely more finished than my previous effort. I'm generally happy with this small, little painting but want to do more with the rest of the figure and environment in the future.

Recent Friday Model

Not much to say here. It was pointed out to me that the highlights to the left and right of her lips may have gotten a little strong. That's possible. In a quick study things may go off like that. I'll just have to make sure I don't get lazy or impatient and really take measure of each brush stroke. That said I do think I like the shadow patterns on this one. Some definite positives to take away for the future.
