Zany fun loving portraits

 "Squirrel" NFS
12x12 Acrylic on canvas 

My daughter incognito

"Grandparents Blessings" NFS
12x12 Acrylic on canvas 

Our Grandson, whom is a blessing to us. 

Though in the past I've painted portraits in Watercolor or Chalk Pastel, I'm presently challenging myself with painting portraits in acrylic. It becomes challenging to create with fast drying medium and I don't use retarders preferring to keep my work area as non-toxic as possible. 
I have to admit I am having great fun with this. 


  1. I love the wackiness and fun. Awesome work.

  2. Thank you Shelley, this is the beginning of a series of "fun" portraits based on family. Presently I'm working another fun portrait.
