“The Gawker (At the Jefferson)”, 12″ x 16″, oil on panel. October 2013.
This painting was inspired by a photo I took at the Jefferson Memorial. The space is quite awe-inspiring, and dwarfs the visitors, who tend to walk around quietly, with an air of reverence. When I saw this man, his pose, appearance and expression caused me to snap his picture immediately… and fortunately, I caught him!
What I learned: columns are harder than they look. 😉
“Two Fish” (sold). Oil on canvas, 7″ x 5″. September 2013.
I finished this small oil painting last month. It’s very small (for me)… in fact, at 7″ x 5″, it’s one of the smallest paintings I’ve ever done! But I wanted to try making some smaller pieces, to see if I could make them faster, and I’ve been wanting to do more koi; also I needed some work to display in the Bin Gallery at the Art League! 🙂
