I've gotten a finished picture of the portrait of Lili (Thanks Dave!)
Thanks so much to Tom and Amy (and the ferrets) for letting me live vicariously through your blog and allowing me to use your photo's! Tom...you have such a wonderful way with words, I'll let you title the painting's I do from your photo's. Here's the first....
Untitled (so far) 11x14 Watercolor and India Ink $100.00
I've been somewhat productive since the opening of my little studio, although I'm not spending nearly enough time down there as I would like. Vacation is soon so hopefully I can sneak down there more then.
I've finished the two portraits I was working on and delivered "Lili with Tulips" to her Dad just in time for Fathers day. Although the finished portrait has a dark background, I didn't get a finished picture of it before I sent it with her dad.
The portrait of Dr. Gillan is also complete.
Dr. Gillan-"Cool Man Cool" SOLD!
I've also gotten "Bahama Race" almost done (Thanks Tom for the reference photo's!) and completed the initial sketches for 4 more paintings.
There's also my first experiment with India Ink. I really like the vibrance it lends to a painting and for once I can say I really don't think the photo does it true justice. I might just send this in for consideration for the juried show in Crawfordsville this year.
Iris- 16x20 India Ink $208.00
