Renaissance Girl

I had fun painting this, the reference image was taken at a Renaissance festival. I used a palette knife to put on the head piece. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.

Thanks everyone for critiquing my last post, I really appreciate your input. I know I will be darkening the area around the dangling foot but I just have to get in there to decide what other changes I may make.

WIP- For Art Festival?

Hi there, I had a booth in a art show last Saturday and Sunday, it was pretty slow. Met some wonderful people though and sold 7 pieces. Five of those were the little square canvases I recently posted.
This painting is 16 x 20 on a stretched canvas. I may submit it for the local arts festival in August if it turns out well. You might recall that I painted this a while back on a 8 x 10 canvas. This time I am working more on his likeness. This is my grandson setting in our chair and ignoring everything around him while playing his game. I am open for your critiques as I'm not sure where I want to make changes. I really liked his position and the way the light is hitting his hair and lashes. I painted the image the way it was in the photo, I realize the feet are large because of foreshortening. I thought the large feet made it cute and funny. Do you find it odd? Of course the piece isn't varnished so the darks have flattened out a bit. As usual my photos are not the best, the painting appears a bit more grayed down on here. Ok, lay it on me, lol.

Lacing up

Hello, I painted this on Monday, a reference photo from Wetcanvas. I wanted it to be very loose and impressionistic, hopefully I accomplished that. I used a palette knife to get some heavy texture for the skirt. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas and I may adjust a few things on it yet.
I am getting ready for a art show this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. This is a antique and art show, their 38th year and last year was the first time they included art. First time for me, I hope we have a good turn out.
Spring is here, crocus are in bloom and I love it. Isn't spring just the best time of the year?

Little Paintings

Hi there, I have a show coming up next weekend and I have been having a ball painting these little canvases. Some are 5x5 and some 6x6 and they are 1 1/2" deep, they are like little boxes. So cute just everywhere, on a shelf, in a window sill or they could be hung on the wall in a tiny spot or in a grouping. Hopefully they will be a big hit at my show, I'll report back. Let me know what you think, I'll be painting more. I ordered twenty 6 x 6 canvases, I love it!

Winter Fun

Hello there, I painted this last week, a little guy having some fun in the snow. I think spring is on the way, hopefully no more snow for us. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas and is available to purchase. I hope things are good in your life.

Edward Potthast

Hi, I copied this painting of Edward Potthasts. I love his children on the beach paintings. A few years ago at the Cincinnati art museum I copied one of the two they have of his. I just looked at his image and freehanded it so things may be off as it wasn't my intention to reproduce it exactly. This is oil on a 14 X 18 stretched canvas. I have a show in a few weeks so I plan to frame it and take it along but if you are interested in it contact me. Have a great day!
