8" x 10" oil on cradled board

This is a portrait of my son-in-law that I finished just before Christmas. I gave it to him as a gift, though I'll have to steal it back to varnish in a few weeks. 

I enjoyed painting this so much. I've been experimenting with different brushes to get more variety in my marks. Where most of my small paintings are all done wet in wet, this one was done in stages using layers of paint.
