This is a commissioned piece for a couple that I met many years ago. They had seen a picture I had painted of an older couple sitting on the beach in Hilton Head. It really appealed to a lot of folks. I guess they imagined it to be them at present or in the future. I am getting closer and closer to relating to it. I will include a picture of "prime time" painted many years ago.
Don't waste today. Think of something positive and fun to do. Every day is a blessing. Wear a mask!!
There are many times that I struggle through a painting. I think I just lose confidence some days and criticize myself left and right. I had to call my husband up to the studio three or four times to give me his opinion on this or that on Cami. I am happy with the way she turned out and thankfully her family is too. She is painted on a 10 x 10" canvas.
Take advantage of artists having more time to do commissions with so much closed and no shows for a bit. Don't wait until two weeks before Christmas or a birthday to get your pet put on canvas.
I have loved painting pears for going on twenty years now. My style has evolved but my enthusiasm has not waned for certain subject matter. I painted most of this with a palette knife. This is painted on a 12 x 24” canvas.
I wonder how many people there are out there who are still using picasa photo editing. I absolutely loved it and have been using it for twenty years give or take. I did the most recent update on my i mac and my picasa no longer works. Very huge sob! I do not like i photo near as much. It has really thrown this old girl for a loop trying to adjust.
This little one was painted over an old 12 x 12” painting. I love the little surprises that show up from underneath. She looks a lot more confident than I am.
