This is Tom!

This piece is still is really wet. I am thinking about doing one more coating or glaze over the top? Soften the darker eyebrow and bring out the highlight more in the darker eye. It's interesting how taking a picture of the picture changes how you see the painting. I have to think is this how it really is or is this the camera changing it? Originally the background was a golden color, but I decided on a mixed black to bring out the flesh tones.

Painting People!

This is one of the paintings that sold at the festival. I was surprised and very happy to receive positive feedback with my people pieces. This is a painting of Tia, a dancer from the Salt Lake Valley. She was kind enough to let me snap a few pictures. I was pleased with the orange tint of her skin contrasting with the blue toned background. Now I need to find a few more people to paint!

Booth at Park City Arts Festival

Here is a picture showing my booth at the festival. It was fun to see and hear what people thought. Now that the festival is over I'm planning my next move and painting more and more.

Park City Art Festival

Today was the first day of the arts festival in the lovely, and close to home, Park City. It was so wonderful to see friends, fellow artists, and family at my booth. It's so encouraging and supportive....I am so grateful. It was a very hot day, but it was great! It was fun to watch people's reaction when they recognized many of the locations of the paintings. I will post pictures of my booth and of visiting friends...I also have a few new paintings to post as well. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported me during the festival!
