Still Kicking

It has been a long year (and there are still three months to go). I’ve been busy with……Life (no boring, whining here). I’ve continued to draw and paint although I have been neglecting my blog, I’m still kicking. Okay, now I’m back to blogging and with exciting news.  I’ve been doing giveaways on my Instagram of pet portraits. This little gentleman painted in oils, is on his way to his new home. I love doing these small (6″x6″) portraits.IMG_0110

Painting Videos

I’ve recently been working on recording my painting process. I’m self taught when it comes to oil painting, so it’s a learn-as-you-go kind of thing. I find that I get so lost in time while I paint, I tend to not notice what I am doing while I am doing it. So, I thought if I record the painting in progress, I would have a reference to go back to, when I want to use a particular technique again. I’m still getting used to the camera being there while I paint, but so far I find that it’s paying off. I’m making high speed videos to post here.
