Jack - A Commission

8x8 oil on cradled board

A commission that was to be a Christmas gift. I had a lot of fun with his rosy cheeks and colorful clothing.

Adelyn - A Gift

6x6 oil on panel

My new granddaughter! This is a small painting I did before the holidays. A gift to her mother. She is such a little peanut!

8x10 oil on cradled board

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I've been recovering from a bad cold and just relaxing. Not really painting right now but I'm starting to get inspired to get back in the studio. I'm going to post a few paintings this week, of commissions & gifts. 

I painted this portrait of Cleo a few months ago, but forgot to post it here. One of my favorite paintings to date!

11"x14" oil on cradled board

It has been so long since I've posted! I know everyone is busy at this time of year, and I think I have taken on way more than normal. But as Christmas gets closer, things are actually settling down. I managed to get this larger than (my) normal painting done. I'm pretty happy with it. But after painting a couple duds and wiping another.... I was due for something to turn out! And I'm grateful to have this one. 

Thanks for all the title suggestions!

I hope everyone out there is surviving the holiday schedules! Cheers!
