Wow! It's been a while since I posted.  My life was off track for a while.  Unfortunately we had 2 deaths in the family.  So there has ben a lot to take care of lately.  I have also been working on our Art Society's new website.  It looks great.  Take a look at it and see what you think.  www.KingwoodArtSociety.com  Even if you can't come to our monthly meetings, you could still join the Kingwood Art Society for $40/yr and then you're able to get the Gallery membership for $20/yr.  which would enable you to post 9 photos of your work, have an artist's bio and contact information.  All for $60 you could have a web presence for your art and you don't even have to manage it.  Where else can you get a deal like that?  If you are interested in your own site, contact me.  I can get you a discount with FineArtStudioOnline.com   I have used them for 2 1/2 years now for my own website and love them.  To get the discount, I have to send you an email with a special link in it.  O.K. that was my sales pitch for the day.


I also wanted to show you the commission I've just finished.  I was pleased with the way it turned out.

 
This is the original sketch of "Sydney".
 
Here I just blocked in the color and got the structure of the face down right.
The finished painting!  I think I redid the face at least 4 times before I got it down just right.
Close up of the precious little angelic face.

Hand detail.

That's all for today.  And hopefully it won't be that long before my next post.  If all goes well,  I'll tell you about a new project I'm starting to work on in the next post.

God Bless,

Debra
