Cute Boy


This is a little painting I did during the workshop I gave at Hill Country Arts Foundation this week, in between helping the students. I think my camera over-emphasizes the blues as they aren't this bright, but it's close enough, I guess.

Today I'm home painting, finishing the large allegorical commission. Lots yet to do and I may do some of it online later in order to have some company. Right now Daniel Greene is talking to me as he paints Erin... on video. I might pick up some helpful tip as I paint, right?

Oh Susan, This is just precious. This is oil, right? I'll check in later to see if you are online painting, hope so.

Susan, this is so great. Captured a little mischievous look on him. Great.

Thank you, Barbara P. Yes, I should have said that- it's an oil, 11x14 on canvas panel. One of those Yes! panels, actually. I liked that most of his features were in shadow, and loved the pattern the shadow made on his face.

Thank you, Barbara M. I wonder if it's just my monitor that punches up all the blues..? Someday I'll have to figure that out. xoxo backatcha!

Thank you, Jo. He does have a little twinkle, doesn't he? This portrait kept me from hovering every moment over my students at HCAF last week. I'm certain they were grateful.

A very nice painting. I bet the parents are beaming like the boy.
