I started a portrait for friend and fellow artist Kathleen Krucoff. Kathleen and her husband Dan have three basset hounds and I have been given the honor of painting Newton.
Still rotating between birds for the July show and New Mythology's polar bear, lamb...and who knows what for the November show. I have sold a number of the small birds, so keeping numbers up for the FCCA gallery is ongoing. I am planning to have prints available for that show and playing with the idea of giving away one of the paintings in a drawing....
In an effort to use all the paint at the end of the day, I have been doing these loose, impressionistic small works. It really is a completely different process than traditional realism which is my genre of choice. Turning off the mind and taking down the boundaries a bit in a painting is refreshing.....If you want this one shoot me a private message.
