Recent work

Hi there!
Well, I've been getting back to painting.  By working smaller, I can just hammer a bunch of stuff out.  Plus, being relatively new to water-soluble oils, there's a lot to experiment with.

A lot of the online art stores have had back-to-school sales, and I'm ALWAYS up for a sale, especially art supplies.  I was able to get a bunch of 8 x 10 canvases cheap. 

Living up in the boonies makes it difficult to practice my favorite subject matter, portraits.  Anytime Sean or Mike see me coming with sketch pad and pencil, they mysteriously have very important stuff to do...somewhere else. 

But, knowing a teenage boy's need for $$, Sean was willing to sit for me...for a price.  Kids, sheesh!!  So, below is the work I did...in 3 stages. 
Day one:

Day two:

Day three (and final):

 Let me know what you think!!  Thanks for looking!!
