Max (underpainting)

Here is an under painting of my boy, Max. He's awesome! This is painted from a reference photo that I took when he was about six months old (artist note: there is no chance of him sitting still and posing). He's 9 months and some change now, growing fast and tall, already had five stitches, he stands and even sais a few words..(Papa, Mama, Hi) he keeps his mom and dad very busy.

This is a small, round painting, slightly less than three inches. I cut this circular piece of luanne wood by hand to fit an antique frame I bought on Ebay. This is a gift for Alison's birthday tomorrow (it wont be finished in time but that's ok) I want to do a bang up job on it and take my time. As you can tell by my infrequent post that my time is limited these days.

I hope you are all well.

Scotty's Cove dinghy (under painting)

I've been very busy raising my little guy and being a stay-at-home dad. As a result, I failed to notice that this under painting didn't, shazam! it is. This is "Scotty's Cove dinghy". This piece represents my effort to paint some larger works, it measures 16x20".
