In progress...

somewhat. I have been working on these two paintings for a while now. The ideas have been drawn out for quite a while. Certainly in the beginning stages. Both will have a playground slide included in them. I have decided these would transfer very well to screen prints. Pretty excited to see them finished...if they turn out like I see them in my mind. Always a difficult thing trying to live up to your own expectations. Anyone else experience that?

New painting of my nephews Myles and Liam

The first painting is one I did of my girls this past spring. It went over well so I decided to paint another in the same style using my nephews this time. This painting is 35"h x 25"w and is a gift for my youngest brother Joe. I painted this on a panel that I removed from the back of an old dresser that I was getting rid of. Rather than junkin' it I took the time to disassemble it and salvage the wood. This is painted with acrylic and tempera.
