• Small wonders

    1 month ago - By Brushstrokes

    Every year around this time I paint a series of 8 x 8 canvases. This started with an annual holiday gift exchange between a group of artists I paint with each week, but kind of morphed into multiple canvases in addition to the exchange gift. The small works give me an opportunity to paint images I have been thinking about but can't seem to commit to paint on the larger sizes I usually work with. Below are this year's small holiday paintings.

    Portraits, whether human or animal, are challenging and require more care than landscapes or still lifes. I was given a handful of photos of Beau which made my job easier as I could view him from several angles to make sure I was capturing his essence as much as possible. Below...
