A Close up...

My commissioned piece is down to the final few glazes.  I'm so pleased with the results so far but a bit nervous about the glazing which will hopefully darken a large area of the painting.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to post a picture of it until July after the wedding it's meant for.

I did get a request from Myra, a friend and awesome artist, to attach a photo of my little boat painting up close. So this is for you my friend:

Unfortunately the only brushstrokes you can see are the ones from the undercoating, which was bright orange by the way.

The show is almost over...

Two weeks goes so quickly.  The show at the New Moon Gallery is almost over.  I encourage everyone who lives nearby to go and see the show.  With the theme of "Junkyard Joe", the display is really interesting.  

Below is a picture of the display.  My painting is the one with the little bulldog in the blue wreck.  He was fun to paint.
