I'm Back! I apologize for the long delay. Quang Ho's workshop was wonderful. Over time I will be incorporating more and more things I learned in upcoming paintings.

The painting, MaryAnn, is a commission for my friend in Lubbock, TX. It is a more finished painting based on an earlier Painting a Day painting and borders on photo realism. It is 12" x 16". It was fun to do but I'm heading toward looser not tighter. The second painting is a 5" x 7" that I still plan on tweaking tomorrow. I was at the Cincinnati Art Museum on Tuesday, having lunch with a friend and snapped some photos of visitors to the museum. I like the play of light in the painting. I also like the Mother and child turning their back on the beautiful painting by Sargent.
