Two New Oil Paintings




I just returned from scanning my two latest oil paintings, shown above. The first is called Timeless, and the model is a woman named Sylvia from Salem, MA who owns an antique and jewelry store. The second painting is the one I've been blogging about recently, my self portrait done from the mirror. Now that I have that one under my belt, I feel more comfortable about painting others from life.
