SOLD - El Viento 1 and El Viento 2

Yesterday a lady called me and asked if I could bring El Viento 1 and 2 for her husband to see.  We had spoken at the last art show I was at and she had seen the horse paintings last year at a show; but her husband had not seen them.

We agreed on a time this morning and I took them over for them to view.  They ended up purchasing them both for a home they are decorating in the USA.

I hope they enjoy them.

Here is a photo of the 2 newly sold paintings.

WIP Commission Painting

Did a little bit of work on the commission painting finally.  It has kind of been on the back burner the last week or so due to other time commitments.  Getting there slowly but surely.  It would go faster if I would quit changing my mind about things partway through.  Hmmm artistic license or lunacy?

Oil on canvas.
Size:  24 x 39 inches, 60 x 100 cms.

Fooling Around

Today I decided it was a good day to just fool around.  I got out one of my photos that I had taken years ago from the scenic viewpoint in San Carlos, the little town about 15 miles from us.

I felt like doing something a bit looser than my usual rather tight and controlled way of doing things.

This is the result, not the greatest; but it was fun anyway.

Tomorrow I am participating in a sale in San Carlos, hopefully there will be a good turn out as it is a fund raiser for the Rescate group there.
