Painting is always a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Here's a self portrait painted from one of Kimberly's photos shot during our trip to Tulum last year.

Dog Portrait Painting Demonstration

I started a dog portrait demonstration painting during Thursday night’s class. I spend most of the class working with the individual students, so I only had a few minutes here and there to start the basic block-in. I’ll be continuing to work on it in Saturday’s class.

Pics From Oil Painting Classes

I’ve been teaching oil painting workshops on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons. It’s been great fun. Look for more classes in the near future at Eva Reynolds Fine Arts.

New class demonstration painting.

Last Thursday, I taught my first class in 7 years at Eva Reynolds Fine Arts. Here is the the painting I created as a demonstration. It was a great evening. Excellent questions and conversations with the students. I'm looking forward to seeing what they can do next week. More classes will be scheduled soon.

Portrait of Ken

I took a break from a painting that I’ve been working on and stressing over for 2 years to do a quick one hour oil sketch of Ken. He’s a cat who loves to hang over whatever is around and stare at you for hours on end. It’s always nice to knock a piece out in one take and not look back. This painting did that for me.

Sacre Coeur From Musée d’Orsay

Finished a new painting today. My favorite sight from a recent trip to Paris. The painting is 3′ x 5′ and was a serious challenge, but I’m happy with the result.

Portrait of Dignan

Here’s a portrait of Dignan. Lot’s of color in his coat, which gets a bit confusing, but it came together quickly. Oil on canvas, 16″x30″.

Portrait of Najee - Final

Here’s the final of Najee’s portrait. A few more precise details in the head, and then I rapidly painted the rest of the body to keep it loose and not distract the focus from the face. I’m very happy with this one.
