Pink Pig

4" x 6" acrylic on canvas panel.
This cookie jar sits on my kitchen counter.
I have been trying to paint several of these small
items a week. They go quickly and
still allow me to concentrate on larger items.

Red Grapes and Silver Bowl

Original acrylic, 4" x  6" on canvas panel
While teaching I greatly neglected the production of my own artwork.
I am now trying to get back into my old work ethic
and paint in the studio on a  regular and predictable daily basis.

Danny , preliminary sketch

Acrylic on canvas, 16" x 20"
This month the LAG hired a senior gentleman and posed him as a cowboy. This is the preliminary painting done from observation  in about an hour and a half. I took a few reference photos to share with the guild and will bring this painting more to fruition in the studio.
