This is my newest painting called"Required Reading," It's 12x16 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides. I have a niece who looks so much like this young woman, who is off to college in Maine . I imagine her on her winter break doing some required reading!

I'll be wrapping up a fun smaller piece tomorrow. I've been gearing up for the holiday season and finalizing some licensing images which will hopefully be in stores after the first of the year if not sooner! I guess the cold weather is here now. I remember complaining about the heat and humidity and now I'm too cold in my studio 100 year old house is mighty drafty these days.
Completed on November 2, 2017 . My son Max, who is an amazing portrait painter, gave me some new botanical brushes for my birthday from England that are pretty incredible to use. The application process was wonderful and made a huge difference for me. This painting is 16x20 I also tried out some new slow drying acrylics that were incredible to work with. Quality is so rich and colors quite vibrant I am happy to have stumbled upon them.
Our power was off for almost three days earlier in the week! I am so grateful to be back to work in my studio and have some light and heat!
Completed on Oct. 25, 2017. This is an epic and heartfelt piece for me. I wanted to dig deep into some of my thoughts and struggles but at the same time show beauty and hopefulness. Another self portrait if you will.
