42/52 A Portrait a Week
I apologize that the quality of these photos aren’t better. It was a commissioned piece for my stepsister of my nephew, Jax. I gave it to them at the family Thanksgiving. She showed it to Jaxon who smiled and pointed at it making a happy noise. She asked who it was and he said, “daddy”. …
26/52 A Portrait A Week
Another portrait for Ian Wilkinson’s San Luis Valley mural. This is a portrait of Tom Tobin. He was a tracker, adventurer, bounty hunter, and killer of Felipe Espinosa– America’s first serial killer (officially 32 murders have been attributed to him, but it’s suspected he and his brother may have killed up to 60)….
20/52 & 21/52 A Portrait A Week
I’ve been working on a commissioned mural. It’s on poly-tab so I get to work on it at home and it will be permanently glued to a wall when it’s time to be installed.

This portrait started out as a simple oil paint sketch as a guide for more painting later. It sat like this for a few weeks. While I had originally intended to paint it as I normally paint all my paintings, I got a little attached to the sketch. I had started playing around with metallic…
9/52 – A Portrait a Week
I put the brushes down, snapped these pictures on my phone and posted it here. Brand new painting. Hopefully dry in time for the show on Friday. Again- any good ideas for a title?
