Painting outdoors at the beach as part of my" Kootenay Life" painting project. Very happy to have had a sun shade as it was over +30. It was difficult a difficult exercise, still figuring out what to bring and what to paint. Will definitely try this again and took some great photos that day that will probably end up being part of the final paintings for exhibition.
Commissioning a portrait over the telephone.
This lovely portrait was commissioned by a collector who was referred by an art associate in Edmonton. This collector lives in Edmonton and discussed all of her wishes as to how she wanted her painting to look over the telephone with me. She was ecstatic with the results and telephoned me as soon as she received the package tearing up with happiness.
She took the photograph herself on her cell phone, and interestingly enough the quality was fantastic enough to create a beautiful portrait.
I am a representational artist residing in Southern B.C, Canada. I enjoy educating and exposing people to great art and great art ideas. Thanks for reading and tell a friend about me!
