This one has no title

This is the first original painting I have done in any class yet this semester. They’ve been having us do things from reference they supply. This assignment took three weeks from start to finish. We shot photos specifcally for the assignment, and the instructor approved them after suggesting changes. Then we started the painting. I guess I spent about 35-40 hours on this one, which is a hell of a long time for me because I tend to rush, and all my other assignments have kind of suffered, including the Napa landscape below that I posted yesterday. There are things about this painting I am not happy with and I will probably revise – main thing is that the small painting to the right is very abrupt and incomplete to me. When the semester is over I am going to work more on this, because I think this painting could really be a keeper. 24″x18″, oil on canvas.

    This is something. The wall carpet is really good, and makes a statment that you can paint anything. Love your soft edges in the carpet design, and the way the different objects in the room hang together as to color saturation, etc., and don’t look like they were pasted in separately. Wonderful.

    Beautiful. I love it. It’s like you’ve captured a moment of contemplation on a sunny morning.
