Half-Hour Portrait

It's been a crazy couple of months, but I think I'm getting my feet under me again. I've got a little backlog of paintings to post; here's the first. This little guy did an amazing job sitting for his portrait, despite being a bit worried about the whole thing.

Half-Hour Portrait


There are several paintings from the last couple months that I still need to post (and I’ve been lame about getting them online), but I just want to put this one of a few I painted today up, because painting this beauty, along with her brother, reminded me how much I loooove painting faces.

Marsh Study No. 2

Same view, different orientation, a little more detail. Off to the right, just out of the frame, is the site of the ongoing War With Beavers. (They want to plug up the culvert; we don't want them to--very complicated. I admit to a disloyal fondness for the opposing team.)
I can't stand the thought that if Michigan Potash gets its way, an enormous potash-mining operation may loom on the horizon of this pristine spot.
