Saratoga Springs Art in the Park

"Amelia" Oil on Linen, 8 x 10

This portrait will be on view at the Saratoga Springs "Art in the Park" event on Saturday, July 9th.  Stop by and say hello if you are in the area.  Thanks to Alice Corey for the photo reference of her beautiful little girl Amelia.  While I prefer to work from my own sketches and reference photos for children's portraits I will work with other people's photos if they are well taken.  Head on over to Alice's website to see some really beautiful photography!

Portrait of a Super Hero

This is a detail of a painting I have been working on a for a while.  I think I am getting close to the finish line.  I still need to refine some color relationships and tone down the background.  I love these superhero poses.  Children have such active imaginations at this age.  Too bad it doesn't last forever!
