painting sneak pic...



The painting is all done... drying in the basement. I'll show you the whole thing properly once it's ready to take it's rightful place behind the couch:)
This, of course, is a portrait of my girls and a reminder that time flies and they are this way only for a short while. I'm happy with the way it turned out:)

Love the apple shirt! I assume you painted in oils since its in the basement to dry, I haven't painted with that medium in years-too smelly.
I am sure the girls will be thrilled!

The painting is great. I really enjoy your work. I have a big canvas that is for a painting behind my couch. I've been trying to figure out what to do on it. Your post made me think about it again. Maybe I'll do something about it now.

Wonderful painting! I find super the shirt with apples! The girls with hands under the "shirt's arm" reminded me that when I was a child I loved to stay with hands in that way!
:D
I'm trying to draw directly with my program (inkskape is an opensource but it is like illustrator) because it is a faster way of working. Thank's a lot

Thanks, Girls!
Ellen - it is oil. I actually like the smell of oil paints:) I keep thinking of switching to acrylics, tho.

I like the smell too but its not too good for the kiddos!
some of my favorite paintings were painted in Oil and I can never get the same look with acrylic but its more kid friendly. My basement is basically my office ( garage under) so there is no where for it to hide. I love that you are painting though, its nice to switch it up!
