Thanks to David O’Dell, I have many photos of the people of Colonial Williamsburg with which to practice my art. This man looked very serene and content. This is 11×14 oils on canvas.
Here is a little charcoal still life that I did one morning after cleaning and re-arranging my studio/florida room. It has been too hot to work out there, so I have been painting in the living room. We have a white berber carpet and I have already had to clean up a blob of ultramarine blue paint off the carpet. Thankfully, with some solvent and clorox spray, it came up and you can’t tell where it was.
