A lot of the paintings I did for my Christmas special were children. Here are a few that I did. I think my favorite is the last little yawner.
I did a painting special before Christmas, and as a result I did nearly thirty custom commissions. This was one that was a little more out of the ordinary — most were portraits. It was a quick painting, but I like how it turned out. Most of it was painted with a pallet knife.
After The Bridge closed down, Kirk Richards kindly offered to continue his class out of his home. Since we don’t have a model come to his house, we bring unfinished paintings and try to finish them. This was a painting I started months ago, and the never quite knew what to do with it. We added a few touches and made it more of a painting rather than a portrait.
I’ll be working on it more during our next class, but I love the way it’s looking so far.
It’s been a long time coming, but I finally finished this triptych last night. Hoping to get them up on the wall this week.
During the summer, I started teaching some children’s art classes. Now that the school year has started, I only have two students and they’ve been working on a self portrait for the last few weeks.
Melanie finished hers this week, and for an 8 year old, I think it’s awesome.
A few weeks ago, The Bridge, where I was attending school, closed down. Sad day for everyone. Fortunately, we ended on a really cool pose. I didn’t get a chance to finish it, but I’ll start working on it at home and try to make it a completed painting.
After a four month maternity leave, I’m back at the Bridge Academy and loving every second of it.
We’re currently working on a cool pose with an awesome model. I’m also loving the feel of the painting with the sunglasses.
I’m excited to see how this one turns out.
