Since I’ve been so busy for the past few months with commissions, I had to put aside some personal work. It was weird going back into this painting after several weeks. Since I was about halfway done, I was able to jump in on the fun stage right away (bringing it to life with highlights and such). So it felt like I knocked out another painting in several hours a couple weekends ago! She is available for sale for $425 (framed).

So now I have to keep the ball rolling and produce as many paintings as I can by November for various galleries and shows I’ve committed myself to. Time to hunker down. But it’s super awesome – I couldn’t be happier about it!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this sketch. It’s the newest painting in the works, still in the early underpainting stage, though. I’m super excited to be able to dedicate all free time to it!

I’ll be posting the work in progress on Instagram, so check those posts out too.

So far I seem to be on schedule with everything. Let’s see if I can get this painting done by the end of April!
