Progression of the 11.5" x 15" portrait rendered in watercolor.
For my daughter Kate on her 30th birthday, I decided to create a watercolor portrait of her daughter. I used a photo reference that husband Kyle had taken as he just tucked Leighton in for the evening (nap).
Here's a 22" x 30" watercolor painting of a beautiful structure located in St. Petersburg, FL.
I got back into painting a few projects this week. Here's an oil painting in progress. Almost there, I'll keep you posted!
I've got a few new painting projects in the works, Here's the completed oil painting. More on the way!
Dropped off the painting today at the Duncan McClellan Gallery, looking forward to the auction on Monday night. It's going to be fun.
This preliminary drawing was accepted for the upcoming art show & silent auction. HSN has teamed with some 30 local artists for Monday evening, October 19th. The event begins at 5:30 pm and will be held at the Duncan McClellan Gallery in St. Petersburg, FL. The Theme for this event is, "Wherever you go, go with all your heart." Proceeds for the auctioned pieces will help support the American Heart Association. I'm honored to be involved with such an important cause.

18" x 24" An oil painting I just completed of my first grandson, sitting out on deck overseeing the lake during our stay in Highlands, NC. My little grand man & his mom celebrated they're birthdays on the same day last month. His was just for being 8 months old. Not quite ready for eating cake, sorry little buddy!
As I mentioned earlier this is a new blog site, so I'm re-posting some projects I had completed last year. Here's a watercolor on Strathmore illustration board. It's a portrait of my daughter Kate & her husband Kyle while they &/theirs friends visited across the pond in Ireland. They had a lot of cloudy skies the images, so I took some liberties w/the sky & had a little fun in the process as well. These images show a bit of the progression in the background as I painted.
