"PJ," painted sketch, image roughly 6-1/2" x 5" on a 9" x 12" page, commissioned portrait of a lovely dark equine. If PJ looks familiar, that's because I painted him a couple weeks ago, and this sketch was an add-on to the project. Thusly it is sold. However, if you would like something similar, I offer a limited number of painted sketches each year, and inquiries may always come my way - I can add you to a waiting list.
Packing My Bags
I know I just got back into town, but I'm hitting the road again. This time it'll be a quick trip north to Traverse City, where I will be painting for 2 days with my hero Lisa Daria Kennedy.
You probably best know her for her daily paintings, but I am equally mesmerized by her larger paintings. She has a strong sense of design and uses saturated color masterfully. There's also a great economy of brushwork in her paintings, and I am eager to learn how she manages that.
Assuming she's on board, I'll share photos and updates over on my Facebook page, if you care to follow along.
And assuming my pieces are strong enough, I will also be offering them for sale on Facebook.
All this will start Saturday morning!
And Monday I will be back in the studio, going strong, I am sure, on adrenaline from the weekend.
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork, and Happy Father's Day to all who have earned and sacrificed for that title!
