Another Small Landscape

Another Small Landscape

Here’s another of the little landscape, or “skyscape,” as I like to call them, paintings.  This is about a 5×7, so it’s pretty small.  Framed, it makes a really nice little piece.  The photo enlarges the texture, but the real painting does not really look too textured.  This size makes a great little addition to a small space, something nice to spark up an area.  These are also very affordable, so if interested, contact me.  Enjoy, thanks and have a great weekend.

Again, I’ve got one pet portrait I’m working on but not quite finished.  The others are still holding as surprises for their recipients.  So, here’s another from the archives.  Enjoy, and thanks.

New Landscapes

I’ve been doing another series of small landscapes.  These are no more than 6×8, so the photo shows a lot of the texture of the painting, which doesn’t appear so much in real life.  I’ll frame these and make a nice presentation.  These will all be priced very reasonably for original art.  Enjoy and have a great weekend.

I’ve gotten to do some more pet portraits, but most of them are presents and I need to wait a bit before posting them.  One thing I don’t want to do is spoil a surprise.  Here’s one from the archives.  Hope you enjoy.  Thanks.

New Project

Here’s the drawing for a new project.  This is the first in a series of three paintings I’m doing for a client.  This one is of Amsterdam, and is based on a photo my client took.  The tower is very interesting, and has some really unique architectural features.  This one should be fun to work on.  More as this develops.  Thanks, and have a good weekend.

Here’s today’s pet portrait.  This is Bailey, a very proper looking boxer.  She has really beautiful eyes, and I enjoyed trying to get the light and color just right.  My client was very pleased with the painting, so I guess it all worked out.  Enjoy, and thanks.

Thursday Portrait

Okay, so this one is a little different.  I had a request to do a horse portrait.  I’ve done horse portraits a couple of times before, but not in quite a while.  I had to really refresh about horses and work with a photo that had some issues, but worked to get this done as a birthday present for a very special young lady.  I think it worked out okay, and I certainly enjoyed the change of pace.  Hope you enjoy, thanks and have a great weekend.

Here’s a nice portrait just finished.  This is Bob, and he is one very sweet and cute dog.  The reference photo was in very bright sunlight and I tried to get the sheen the sun made on his coat.  The painting looked much better in real life.  That’s one of the problems with posting these photos; they just don’t do the painting justice sometimes.  In any event, enjoy and thanks.

Thursday House Portrait

I got to do another house portrait for a realtor in the last couple of weeks.  Ironically, I find these house portraits quite fun and challenging.  It’s my goal to “idealize” the house without making too many changes to the actual structure.  My hope is that the image created of the house becomes the mental image the owners or sellers keep of their home.  I certainly hope the buyers of this house enjoy the painting.  Thanks, enjoy and have a great weekend.

Tuesday Pet Portrait

Here’s Tuesday’s pet portrait.  This is a memorial portrait just painted and gifted by a group of wonderful folks who love their dogs and their co-workers.  I’ve done several for this group, and as sad as it is to do a memorial portrait, the fact that the people care enough about other people to have these done and gifted is quite uplifting.  I really hope it helps the person through their loss.  Thanks,
