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.

Dancing For Joy updated

Dancing for joy (no longer available)
Sometimes a painting needs to settle for awhile. The previous version of this was hanging where I saw it every morning after it came back from an exhibition. It felt unfinished to me so back on the easel it went for a work-over. The painting now has depth and is I believe a stronger piece.
