Don't have a lot of time but friends wanted to see the progress of the last two paintings. Both were finished tonight but I don't have any updated photos. These photos were taken a week ago and much improvement has been done to both paintings.
The first is the large painting, " Needle in a Haystack" and the other is the picture our friend, Michelle took in Key Largo, Florida of a friendly Egret, they called him, "Artoneous", so that is the name of the painting too.

I photographed the portrait commission I call "Robert's Dad" the colors online are not as accurate as they actually look. I am not sure I like the background it has been changed so many times. I am going to show it to Robert and see what he thinks. I was going to add a subtle American flag draping downward in the background. I will talk with Robert and then decide.
I am also ready to place my Central Park picture I named "Crossing in the Park" on my website for sale.
Things are coming together for the Thornebrook Art Festival on Oct. 1,2, and 3. I will post the pics of Florida Keys bird and the over sized Haystack during the week. Spending the day at the High Springs Art CoOp I got a lot of painting done and met some very nice customers. The end of the day let loose with a deluge of rain so I couldn't take pics of the work I was doing. I will go back there during the week with my camera.

Scooby and Bullwinkle taking life easy.
Getting ready for the festival at Thornebrook, Oct 1,2 and 3. I finished "Crossing at the Park", the pic of Central Park and "When we were young" the pic of Heather and Courtney. There is still so much to do. Prints and labels, I already ordered more business cards and framed all the paintings done except for the park pic, but I just ordered a frame from ASW, Art Supply Warehouse. They have the best prices. If you need art supplies check them out they are great. One price for shipping and they arrive very quickly!
I haven't posted the portrait I have been doing because I am unhappy with the background I will post all the new pics next week. So I started a big haystack pic and this one from the Florida Keys. My friend Michelle took this picture while vacationing in Key Largo. I loved it and so here is the beginning layout. More soon!
