It's been two months since I posted to my blog. It's been a great summer, and it ended with a wonderful week in Hawaii. I've been home a week and my studio is overflowing with frames and boxes and hardware. I'm getting ready for a show at the Chalk Hill Residency on October 6th.
I harnessed the power of social media last night to gather opinions on which frames worked for which paintings. It was great to see the conflict and consensus - and I will now take photos of all paintings in various frames to give collectors an option if they don't favor the one I eventually use!
I'm currently working on a fun commission - portraits of two beautiful young sisters. My process always begins with meeting and sketching my models, and creating thumbnail drawings of the recommended composition. The girls will be painted in an outdoor setting, with afternoon sun rim-lighting their hair.
I have time for one more commission before the holidays, so if you are thinking of a great gift for someone special...now is the time to get in touch!
