work in progress, commissioned 12 x12 from Day 21 of 30 Day Challenge
Here's the latest piece I've been working on. It's a larger version of Day 21 from the 30 Day Painting Challenge.
Shortly after posting the small 6 x 6 painting I received an email to have this piece painted larger.
I put both paintings side by side so you can see the difference in size.
I've been commissioned to paint this scene at 24" x 24" too! (Can't wait for the challenge! I just purchased the canvas today!)
When painting the small 6 x 6's, it trains me to be conscience of each brushstroke and color that I apply. It's like studying a puzzle and carefully fitting all the pieces together... and boy do I love to do puzzles! But when a request comes in to enlarge a painting... it's so exciting because I get to really play with the brush strokes, refining the colors or adding new ones and adding more depth by the way I paint the edges soft or sharp.
If one of my small, mini paintings catches your eye and you would like me to paint a larger version... just give me a call or send an e-mail, I would be happy to give you an estimate and time frame. Or if you have a great photo that you would like to be reproduced as an original oil painting... it would be a pleasure to work with you!
Thanks for viewing my artwork,

I can't wait to package this painting up and ship it off to my friend Annette. Annette and I are college friends from Western New England College. We just recently reconnected on Facebook and it's nice to see her again!
I painted this small 6 x 8 painting last summer while my family and I were on a picnic in Guilford. It was a beautiful summer day and this little girl happened to walk into my view when I was just about finished with the painting. I added her in and so pleases with the results. Hope you enjoy the painting Annette!
