Pavonia (after Leighton)

I started this painting last spring sometime and finished today...it was the only unfinished painting left in my queue.  This is as far as I am taking it. Working with old master paintings is always such an enriching experience.

2012!

Happy New Year!

As always, it's time to set new intentions.  Here are mine for this year:

1. Drink a lot of tea. (already off to a good start!)
2. Paint portraits.

That's it!

Here is a pretty color chart of my new Rublev paints.  I love them muchly.
