A Special Night

Andrew commissioned this painting for his wife. I painted from his photo of them at the Empire State Building.

14" x 11" Oil on Linen

Here is the sketch:

I set out a full palette for this painting:

And started with an transparent iron oxide underpainting that I like to have show through near the edges. It also avoids any glaring white showing through from the canvas.

Will you marry me Sarah?

Will you...

11" x 14" Oil on linen.
Not For Sale

This has been on my easel for a very long time. Life and
programming has been cosuming my painting time. At
any rate, I think it may be done.

Ed in the Hat

11" x 14" Oil on Linen
Not for sale.

A great photo from what must have been a fantastic trip to Spain was the source for this painting. Thanks to Bob for the use of the image. I painted Ed with a bit of exaggeration that is not quite caricature.

Five Stages

8" x 10" Oil on Linen.

Peter Sagan collected a literal hand full of stage wins at the Tour of California this year. It will be interesting to see him head to head with all the other top sprinters at the Tour de France. I can see him giving Cavendish a run for his money since he continued this dominance in Switzerland. I cropped my composition to put his hand at the upper left sweet spot. The shoulder to his left is Boonen.
