Another update

Here is the portrait so far. Did some background work. I will probably only have another day to work on this as we are heading south for a few days next week to attend one of our granddson's HS graduation. I definitely plan on finishing this the first part of June.

Here is an update. I had to stop working on the faces as they became too wet. I started mapping out the background and worked on some of the clothing.

Portrait commission in progress

This is my latest portrait commission. A grandfather and his granddaughter. I love that she is holding crayons in her hand. I hope to finish this by the first part of June with a trip to MD in the middle to see a grandson graduate from HS. This is about 16 x 20, oil pastel on uArt 800.


This is before and it got much worse.
These units cover one entire wall.

It has been awhile since I posted, but life has been busy. My studio mates and I decided to add some storage units to the storage room of our studio space. It was alost impossible to move in the room and forget  about trying to find anything. It kept getting worse and worse as we just dumed stuff in there to clear out the other areas. We now each have a section of large vertical space, small vertical space and a large shelf area.
