Woah, it's 2014! I spent the last few weeks of 2013 putting finishing touches on my solo show, and then jetting off to sunny Southern California for Christmas with family.
I did, of course, manage to hastily apply some paint here and there.
These portrait sketches were done at some point during the craziness. They are both about 8x6", oil on Arches oil paper.
Just after the New Year, I was thrilled to wake up to this lovely article about the show, and The Gallery at the Watershed.
And I began the year on an excellent note, painting a model in my studio with good art friends. Here's a detail shot of the nearly-finished piece.
