The Wait

I had kind of forgotten about these ladies.
In case you did too, I showed this painting before in its early stages. There was the initial underpainting, and its continuation as I started adding color. Since I shared the process, I figured I’d share the finished piece. (more…)

My Roots Are Showing

I’m on vacation this week. I need some time to recover from the last vacay and I need to mentally prepare for the next one. I know what you’re thinking, “You un-American, s.o.b., who the hell do you think you are, taking off more than three days of work without stressing over it? Where’s the pride?
