18x24 oil on stretched canvas
so this is one thing i've been working on...since it's so large it's taken me several days...I'm really liking how it's turning out...I've shown the way i started at the top..toned the canvas with orange since there were going to be a lot of blues..(complimentary)..and I always like a little of the canvas showing through..I've also placed my darkest darks and my lightest lights as a road map to go by...in the next photo I'm starting to cover the canvas..it's important to get the canvas covered and work all over the canvas at once..not falling in love with any one spot or part of the whole...when a happy accident happens..i run with it..this will be going to my midland gallery in carmel next Tuesday. I was able to work today since we're not having our family gathering until Saturday..tomorrow i'll get more organized for that but I wanted to say happy thanksgiving to everyone today!...we sure have a lot to be thankful for!

Original oil on 30x20 board
so here's the second in my series using daddy's photographs. I don't know whether this is chicago or new York but it was probably taken in the 50s...lots of fun to play with color since these are all in black and white...

24x24 oil on gallery wrap canvas
so i think i'm' finished with this little guy..I've painted this image before..a little fellow I found on the beach at st. simons many years ago...I wanted to do him a bit looser and with an unusual color palatte..I need to take a better picture before i put it on my website or etsy or facebook but you can get the idea...
