Painting No. 66
Here's a painting I did for my friend Emily. She has a side business called Bello's Bike Pops and she makes gourmet frozen treats. So adorable...and delicious! She's been super busy this year...her and her husband Justin recently opened a coffee shop in Newport, KY where they grind their own coffee. Really neat! We are hoping to make it out to Cininanni soon to visit the Carabello Coffee Shop! :)
Painting No. 65, 8x10in, oil on hardboard
This might look familiar if you've been following my blog. It's very similar to a 6x6 painting I did about a month ago. I'm very pleased with how this one came out. I like my variety of brushstroke style and width. Sometimes I can overwork a painting and it looks forced and too blended...but I was able to keep this one loose and 'free' feeling, if that makes any sense. It probably is my favorite painting so far on my journey to 500. (And luckily, 'I' get to keep it since it was painted for Wes' birthday! :)
Painting No. 62, 63, & 64, 16x20in triptych, oil on cradled hardboard
Not for sale, Commissioned Piece
I was commissioned to create this landscape triptyph for a dear college friend of mine. It was a challenge since I have always admired Mel's own artistic abilities, so to paint something for HER was a slightly intimidating, yet exciting challenge. Luckily, I'm really pleased with the results...and so is she! :) I like that I was able to keep the brushstrokes loose with lots of movement. I also was intentional about creating brushstroke variety. I used a really big brush for laying in some of theh sky color, and I really like how that turned out. Now if Mel weren't so busy taking care of four kids under the age of five, I'd be asking her to paint something for ME! ha ha :)

This was painted at Hanover College, during the Great River Paint Out in September. I wasn't planning on adding in all the brights lines at the end, it just sorta happened...I like that it gives the painting a sense of movement and a funky vibe.
