"Heinrich," work in process, 16" x 16", commissioned German Shepherd portrait, acrylic on Ampersand Gessoboard. Inquiries may always come to me.
Today I continued refining Heinrich's portrait, identifying values and modelling the shape of his head with bold and gestural brushwork. I'll continue much of the same in the coming days, gradually working with softer colors and establishing a strong sense of presence.
Today, one of my last full days in the studio prior to Christmas, I also was graced with multiple visits from collectors and friends. It is rewarding beyond belief to be a part of so many families' gift giving, knowing that I have crafted something that will bring so much joy to the recipients (and gifters alike). Thank you so much for allowing me this opportunity.
Wishing you all the best in the coming days. May you be surrounded by family and friends of the two and four legged variety, and be served feasts to satisfy both the heart and belly.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
