Izzy

img_2821This is Izzy, painted for a coworker of my son who bought a pet portrait at a silent auction fund raiser. I got a wonderful thank you note from the owner and a couple bottles of wine. She gave it to her husband at Christmas. Ahh… the joy of painting!

Olive progression

This is a commissioned piece for a bar in Hampton. These three pictures show the progression of  painting olives. The undercoated olives are in yellow. I then base coated the olives in various shades of green.  Then the final painting of the juicy olives.  What can I say, “olive painting”!
