I’m still gathering my thoughts for my next project – a portrait.The portrait will be of a very close companion that recently passed away, and who was very dear to my wife and I. Peaches, our sweet cocker spaniel, spent fifteen years with us. We received her as a six week old puppy and she instantly won over our hearts. I talk a bit more about her when I get started on the project.
Something else that’s keeping me busy is a commission to do a Home Portrait. I’ve been working on that for a number of weeks now and it’s nearing completion. The home is a lovely historic structure in Ocala, Florida and I’m pleased to have the opportunity to paint it. After I’ve completed it and presented it to the owners I’ll post an image of it here.
Another thing occupying my time now is preparing for an upcoming fine art festival in Dunnellon, Florida. The Rainbow Springs Fine Art Association is hosting it’s first Rainbow Spring Art Festival on November 21st. I’m in the process of building some display stands to hold my paintings. If you live in the area consider coming to this event. The Association has been working hard putting this one together and it looks like it will be a great event.
Finally, I have an upcoming art class I’m teaching in November, and I’m getting ready for that. I thought I would have the project pictures available by now but it’s taking a bit longer than expected, especially with all the other things going on. I’m excited about this class.
