"In Progress" 24"x36"

Here is the first step in my new painting. This is pretty much about 6-7 hours of work. I've pretty much worked out the drawing, I'll fix any glitches in the painting stage, as I'm getting tired of erasing rooftops! In the painting, most of the buildings, with the exception of the Duomo, will be merely suggested, but I felt that I needed to draw them in nonetheless, in order to get the perspective right.
I'll post the next installment soon. Cheers!

Beach Babe

Beach Babe 6x6 oil on panel

My beautiful girl...Rhiannon at the Beach in Maui.
I started my monster painting today. I'm already struggling. I think it's artist's block, because it's big and intimidating. I need to think more positively for tomorrow. And I'll post my first in progress of it, too.
G'night for now.

Brotherly Love

"Brotherly Love" 20"x24" oil on canvas NFS

Here's the companion piece to "A Walk on the Beach". My lovely children, Rhiannon and Jacob in a beautiful, brother/sister moment:) I can't bear to part with this one, so it won't be for sale.
I have many new paintings to post, and a huge "masterpiece" to start soon, so check back often.
I'll be posting "in progress" pictures for the "masterpiece". I'm calling it that because it's large, and because I think that to date, it will be the most challenging painting that I've ever attempted. I've done a few landscapes, and a few buildings, and you all know that I love to paint people, but this piece has it all.
Well, back to the drawing board....
