I started this painting during my broadcasts, so those of you who join me while I'm painting live will recognize it. I had some days at the gallery to paint, so finished it up here. Quite an epic painting, yes? Notre Dame and the autumn landscape in the background was a great puzzle to figure out and each stone in the foreground needed to have its own character. Very little about this painting felt familiar or easy, so I feel extra proud at the completion of it. The parents of the little boys in the painting went to school and now work at Notre Dame.
Tomorrow I'll be painting a small (8"x10") painting of an adorable Persian kitten named Gilbert.
