Delinquent (with a side of portraits)

I am currently staring at (and avoiding) a list with 15 ideas for blog posts.  I drafted it last year and haven't even touched it yet in 2016.  There is SO MUCH I need to catch up on!

Talking to some current clients put me in a lovey-dovey mood and reminded me of this sweet engagement portrait I did for a couple last fall.  

This was a little 11x14" painting on wood.  The very smooth texture was great for laying down fine details.

The texture showed up really well when it was all dry and finished.

Love watching the progress from monochrome underpainting to final piece!

I'll try to update more soon and fill in some of the work I've done in the last year.  Lots to show you!
