Home Sweet Home

This is 1 of 2 recent commissions I finished. This home portrait is to be a Christmas present, so I won't be posting it on my Facebook page. But I'm pretty sure my blog is ok, and I wanted to show what I've been working on.

This wonderful home was fun to paint. The client gave me a few different photos of the home (it's not close enough for me to drive by). I liked this particular one because I liked the inviting approach to the home. And, as with all my home portraits, I like the front door to be the "destination" for the viewers eye. 

The original photo did not show the flowers, but the client did not mind my adding some. I thought the pops of color along the walkway and the front hedges were a nice touch to the scene. And they also helped to draw the eye to the front door.

Gated Entry

"Gated Entry" - Tijuana
9x12 acrylic on canvas
Available through DPW gallery/auction

This painting is for this months VPO which is visiting Tijuana. I've been away from the VPO for a couple of months due to time restrictions, but I was determined to do this months. Especially when I found this wonderful view - it's very hard for me to resist flowers on an entry or gateway. This one is no exception.

Jakobs Bay

"Jakobs Bay" - South Africa
9x12 acrylic on canvas
Available through Daily Paintworks auction - click here to bid

This painting was done from a reference photo done by Marna Buys. When I first saw these boats, I just knew I had to paint this. It was all shapes! And I can't resist shapes of color!

Marna is one of many photographers who donate their photos to a FB group called Photos for Artists. It's a private FB group - and all photos are available to be used, copyright free. The main rule is that I can't post the original photo here, but I can post the photograph & sell it as well. 

This is available through DPW auction.
