Two Beauties

















Still in process but getting closer on this portrait of two lovely young ladies. Maybe another day of work and it will be finished. This was also a large painting measuring 40 X 38. Oil on panel.

Tiger Face


















Here is a close-up of the tiger's face.

Stripes and Solids In Process












Meow. This is an "in process" view of my most recent undertaking, a 6' X 4' oil painting on prepared panel of (in case you can't tell) a tiger. After much research together with consultation with my lovely client we arrived at this composition. I knew this would be a difficult painting because of its size and complexity especially with regard to the composition but I had no idea how long it would actually take me. We are still fine tuning the details but I hope to have it completed very soon. I am anxious to see what type of frame my client will choose and with a little luck I will see it hanging in its final resting place. I wish I had more opportunity to paint large pieces like this. It has been a challenge and a learning experience.
