Seven Grandchildren Commission..

This is a commission I just did for a client that had commissioned me to paint her 5 grandchildren by the lake a few years ago..  However, she now has 7 beautiful grand-kids.  I loved the body language of one of the photos she supplied me.  Since they are "lake folks" I attempted that feeling in the back ground.   She liked it.

Lil Pink Fish & Friends

This started out as a watercolor demo when I visited the Brush Bunch in Walhalla last week, I painted the Gold fishy to demo glazing, and on to the little one to demo "lifting"and blending, etc.  One of the members painted the yellowish fish while i was eating lunch.. I had to do a lot of repair work on it later..ha..  It is a playful painting, it seems.
