On sleeping companions, I put more shadow under the cat giving it a better anchor into the painting.This added an extra 5 minutes to the painting. Also here is a painting of Clarene, our grandaughter, at the beach. Again this is a 60 minute oil sketch. The kind of paper I used to print the image on greatly changed the color temperature of the painting. Photo paper prints warmer color and photocopy paper is cooler colors. I thought that was kind of interesting. Good night all!
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
