Gerry Creates the Winds

I really didn't intend to deify Gerry as I seem to have ended up doing in this portrait. Suffice to say he visually fits the archetype of the wise old man as described by Carl Jung, so the wispy brush stokes seem to place him directly in the realm of cloud-sitters.

Click here for an earlier portrait of Gerry, it's nice to see improvement over time.

Young Girl

Just a few more days to see the show in Bristol, so if you plan to get there you've got until the 18th!

Also, there is now a digital gallery posted of the Oil Painters of America upcoming 19th Annual Juried Exhibition of Traditional Oils at Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona. Names are alphabetical so my piece is most of the way down the page, check it out and see some beautiful paintings!

And here is another portrait from the usual Monday night painting group.
