Hollister Final

Oil on Wood Panel

Here is the finished painting of Hollister. I was so excited when I received his photo, I couldn't wait to paint this guy! He has such fun hair! I really worked the texture on this one and am pleased with how he turned out.

Detail of nose.

Here's a shot of the painting hanging on the wall. This is painted on a self hanging wood panel and I've painted the edges with black acrylic paint.

Certificate of Authenticity on the back of the painting.

Rose Sketch

Pencil sketch of a rose I did for the Paint and Draw Together blog. I didn't have the time or materials with me to do anything fancier but I had a little bit of time this morning and thought I'd go ahead and do something.

Abby - Work in Progress 2

Getting the first layer of paint down on Abby. I'm really having fun working with these colors!

Abby - Work in Progress 1

Sketch of the second of the three cats I'm working on. This is Sumi's (previous post) brother Abacus (Abby). I remembered to stop and get a photo of this one at the sketch (scribble) stage. The sketch is quite rough, just trying to get a general composition down more than anything, getting the likeness will come later.

This is the first stage of one of three cat paintings I'm currently working on.

A New Web Site!

I've finally done it! After 10 years I have given my web site a face lift! I'm much happier with the new color scheme than the previous brown version.
