Thought I'd start with a self portrait. Although not a recent one, I did this about a year and a half ago for an online class I was taking.
I specialize in painting horses in scenes rather than portraits, however, my four legged models sometimes want their two legged companions included, so I have spent considerable time and energy practicing painting portraits in past years. And yes, I usually make my people a few years younger and if they like slimmer, a policy I started many years ago after making my mother in law look older than she was, during a painting demonstration.
No I didn't make this fellow thinner.
Today I'm drawing a cartoon for my first monthly email newsletter. This newsletter will be about hanging paintings. And hopefully will be sent out Oct. 11th. Click here
