More Florals

Portrait Painting Session

In August an artist friend, Ed Tereshinski, and I painted portraits of his son (thanks for sitting!). We both painted on panel. I'm loving panels for small pieces. I prep artist-grade panels with R. Doak's Panel Primer or Gamblin Ground, 3-4 coats.

Finished Portrait

After many months a portrait is dry, varnished, framed and hung. This particular painting was framed in a Hackman Frame (Ohio) and was a beautiful custom piece. In August I went to varnish the portrait on site and pick up still life pieces for two wine-themed still lifes for the front entry of the same home.
