Portrait of Hank

Here's my latest portrait of a local artist named Hank!  The photo makes the yellow in his shirt look a lot brighter than it is in "real life" - in the painting.  Thanks for viewing my progress!

April Figures

Here are my two latest paintings.  The top one is not quite finished, but almost.  It's quite different from my usual style.  The bottom painting was done in a figure class with Miriam Durkin.  Both of the paintings are very large!

Face Phobia

I started these two paintings over a year ago.  I've had what Andy Braitman refers to as face phobia, and have had an impossible time finishing their faces.  Yesterday, I bit the bullet and just FINISHED both paintings!  It's freeing to be able to sign them and to move on to something else.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Last fall when we visited our friend Jack in San Francisco, he had a large painting over his fireplace of a couple dancing in the woods.  I didn't try to copy it exactly, but painted a large interpretation (24x36) of it.  It is my Valentine's Day card to my wonderful husband.   Happy Valentine's Day!

Figure Painting!

I'm taking another figure class from Miriam Durkin!  This week we worked on skin tones and shadow colors. I can tell that I am making progress!
