Two landscapes and a portrait painting

Posted by on June 17th, 2014  •  0 Comments

Here are the 3 new paintings I talked about in previous posts. Since painting the portrait of dad, I’ve started 3 new portraits of people who liked dad’s painting, and offered to sit for a portrait of their own. At this point, I’m not doing these for money, it’s just for practice.

I’m unsure what will happen to the portraits. I may enter them in a show, or an art competition. But eventually they will belong to the people who posed for them. I sort of owe them, since I would have to pay an artist model $30/hour to pose for me. And at seven or more hours per portrait, I can’t afford to pay models.

Working on friends is a perfect fit. I get practice, and they get…at the very least, a nice image for social media, definitely a print, and maybe even, at some point in the future, the original….once I’m ready to let go of it.
