Starry Night, 30 x 20
Well, it was time for another commission, and yes, I said yes, BUT... I did this painting as a wedding gift for a friend to give to her close friend's son and his wife. Since I did one last year for a gift from this same friend for the sister of the groom, I could hardly say no : ) Below is the painting from last year:
Wedding Day, 30 x 20
I did not want the new commission to be a portrait, so I tried to keep it free but fairly true to the subject.
I think I mostly did that, and I didn't have to do two paintings this year (as I did last year) to end up with one, so that is a bit of progress, je pense ... photo reference below :
Meanwhile, kids have been back to see us in Atlanta from Alaska, and look at these cool paintings done by my little grandchildren last week:
Eli, age 3
Sarah, age 6
Needless to say, I gave them only three colors, my limited, limited palette - see photo below:
Going for it!
I taught a really fun one day workshop on Painting Children last Sunday at Huff Harrington, and will post on that next time!
