On the easel

A few process shots of an 8" x 10" painting. Painted on a panel where I sanded off another painting, so there is color underneath. (I really love painting over old paintings, as long as there's not much paint buildup.) It's not quite finished.
Taryn Day has a wonderful blog called The Art Room, where she's currently writing about artists who blog. There's a nice post about moi. Check it out!
Also a shout out to Carrie Decker , who has a blog called Crazy Over Art, where she's featuring art by different artists.

Oil on canvas paper, 11x14
Last night's model. It was good to get back to painting portraits after the Christmas break. I'll be teaching a portrait class in April at the Portsmouth (RI) Art Guild.

Out with the old- sold

Oil on canvas, mounted on board, approx. 4" x 5"
I'm in housecleaning mode, and I've targeted all of those old paintings that I couldn't get myself to throw away or paint over because there were a few square inches of painting that I liked. So what I decided to do is cut out the pieces that I liked and throw the rest away. Brilliant, huh?

So here's the first, who can resist primroses, they have always seemed like harbingers of spring when I see them at the market.

Cheers- sold

Oil on panel, 10" x 8"
A couple of days late, but here's to a new year. I have two resolutions, and the second one is just to keep remembering the first.
