I'm finally working on a larger canvas again! This is 36" x 18". Of course, it would be more exciting on a 48" x 24" canvas, but I am not sure I have enough room. Maybe next time.
This is all just loosely blocked in with thinned oil paint. Several more layers to follow.

Getting pretty close with this one. I've worked on the oil painting below as well, but there are a few things I want to change before I post it again. Look for more tomorrow or the day after.
Also, it's way too hot outside. Still. It doesn't look like there is a whole lot of relief in the forecast, but I suppose I should just be happy it isn't in the triple digits anymore.

Two posts in one day! I had time to paint while the sun was up today. What a treat. You can see that the legs and forward arm are more finished than the rest. Now only if I could figure out how to get the saturation in Photoshop to match the saturation outside of Photoshop. Anyway, I'm thinking of naming this one "Pensive."

Last Friday was the opening of my show, "Allegories and Allusions," at Strecker-Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, KS. My mother and grandmother were in town, so we made a nice trip of it, starting out early on Friday and stopping in Lawrence for a few hours. We stopped by the Lawrence Arts Center where one of my paintings is on display in the Lawrence Art Guild's All Members Show. I also saw a great piece by photographer friend Daniel Coburn, as well as many other interesting pieces. Hopefully I'll eventually have some pictures from that show to share.
Anyway, I had a great time and received lots of positive feedback and met some new artists, which is always a plus. These pictures don't show it, but there was actually a nice crowd of people in attendance! We had a late dinner after the show with artists, the gallery owners, et al. and spent the night there to avoid a long drive home at night. Now that the fun is over, it's time to get back to work.
