Oil on linen, 40 x 30 inches, 2011
I began this blog in September of 2009. It was inspired by the Painting a Day movement. Although most of the earlier work posted here is less direct and involved more than one sitting to complete, the idea was similar to the daily painters in that I intended to regularly offer small, affordable oil paintings, mostly of the human figure, that were consistent with and derived from my larger, more thematic work. My intention was to post a new painting every other day, and the project was quite successful. However, I have now turned my attention to commissioned portraiture. I will continue to post both new and older work to the blog. Please come back often, or subscribe to follow this blog at the link below. I look forward to your comments, and please email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working with Charles was such a great experience. I'm not accustomed to sitting for portraits, but Charles made it so easy. We met a few times for him to take pictures and discuss what I was looking for in a portrait. Then the rest was up to him, and I'm really pleased with the final product. I don't thInk small pictures on the internet do Charles' work justice, so if you haven't seen his work at the state capitol, take the opportunity to visit Charles' studio and find out why he was selected for the Governor's portrait, the most coveted portrait commission in the last eight years.ReplyDelete
Good to see this post Charles. I enjoy this painting and the way it is put together.ReplyDelete
In real life I'll bet it is awesome.
