Percy the Seagull

Percy the Seagull
10" x 8"
oil pastel on paper
price $45

This was a painting based on a photo posted as a Daily Paintworks Challenge for this week. I have recently joined Daily Paintworks, which features artists' original works and offers them for sale and through auctions.  See my gallery here.

I'm hoping this site will encourage me to continue to paint smaller studies while working on larger commissions.  It's a good break for me, and a great exercise!

I did an alcohol wash underpainting on a new light blue Sabretooth sanded pastel paper I picked up recently...

Stay tuned for the latest paintings off the easel!

Wedding Church Commission

Going to the Chapel
11" x 14"
oil pastel on Pastelbord

A bride-to-be commissioned this painting of the church where they will get married in October.  We added some fall color to the trees, since she took the photo in mid-summer.  This is her wedding gift for the groom (though once she received it, she couldn't wait to show him!).  The church is a historic site located in Stratford, Connecticut.

For more information on commissions, see my Etsy shop or message me at ! My schedule is filling up for the holiday season, currently into November.  

Thank you for reading!
