"Beauteous Refined"


18x24 oil on canvas

I have the 2nd oil painting to finally share with you which is for my client and exhibition in London, I had to go through some touch ups and yes with oils it is a patient process. ( a good lesson for a slightly impatient person as myself). This one was based on a beauty shot from the talented Jan Welters. I am going through some of my favorite photographers for this entire series, so honestly I am more then anxious and excited to get going on the third.

Also with the cat and mouse game of trying to get caught up on this oh so amazing busy month that is December, . I am still not done with shopping for Christmas, but today woke up to at least 10 inches of snow here in Denver, the car is staying put and a hot long bath instead.. of course..

Hope you are all having a wonderful week...

Merry Christmas, Leigh! This is so gorgeous and I am ridiculously excited for you and London. You will take that town by storm! They will love you so much!

Ps... I have yet to do all my shopping. Sigh....

I completely agree with you about oil paints. I NEED immediate results, and I end up constantly fudging up the layers. You did a beautiful job with them though - I love the highlighting on the nose. So much envy.

Hope you manage to get your Christmas shopping done somehow and happy holidays!! :)
