When I'm not papercuting and practicing Scottish accents with Terry, I can also be found painting portraits...
William, Lacey, Grayson, 36" x 24", acrylic on canvas
Arent they the cutest? The rosy cheeks, the sweet smiles, the polka dots and pink bows, the t-shirts! It was a thrill painting them!
Miga, 24" x 24", acrylic on canvas
I love dogs, and she was truly the sweetest. With her head slightly leaning to the left, giving her also a very wise expression, don't you think?
Alex and Pat, 36" x 24", acrylic on canvas
While I was doing the portrait, Alex sent me cigars he liked smoking, so that I would paint it just right. I have yet to smoke them! :)
Trick Rider, 30" x 40", acrylic on canvas
This portrait was commissioned by a woman as a surprise for her husband. He used to trick ride as a kid, back in the 50's, and fondly remembered those days. He always dreamed of trick riding in front of an audience, but never did. She had a photo of him on a horse, so she asked me to put a little audience :) in the background. The audience was quite impressed, let me tell you!
