Monday's Model 14x11

"Monday's Model" -I did not get the model's name. I wish I had because she was a great model. She was able to hold the pose very well and was able to get back into the same position each time after the break which is very much appreciated by all artists painting her. Anyway, I was kind of happy with the result. I am really learning a lot by doing the portrait commissions that I am currently spending lots of time on.

Let me know if you are interested in purchasing this painting.

"Starting Over"

"Starting Over" 14x11

This painting was today's demo for my class. The name has a couple of meanings. Firstly, I wiped off the first drawing because the composition was off, so I "started over". But this is also a poinsettia painting and since this is the Christmas Season, it's also a chance to "start over". What would we do without the Christ-mas season? Knowing Christ has allowed many folks to start over, to make a new beginning. It's through faith in Jesus Christ that allow us to know who we are, where we are going and where we come from. At the risk of sounding like a Hallmark card (which is what my son told me), my faith is about peace for today and hope for tomorrow. Thanks Jesus!
Have a blessed holiday season!

This was a scene in Provence. Poppies were just beginning to bloom.
