This was my first attempt at painting an Elephant and I am so happy with how it turned out. I just started exploring the world of Acrylic Paints and it has been fun and challenging to learn an entirely new way to paint.

This painting was a lot of fun. It's the first portrait that I did of a complete stranger. I picked this image because I wanted some practice painting wrinkles, spots and other features of an older face. It was really nice not to have the pressure to make the person look perfect and to just have fun moving some paint around.

I've recently started to paint and one of the free online classes I'm working through suggested starting a blog to serve as a timeline for my work. So here we are!
My first project was a oil painting of my son Seth. I worked off an infant photo. In the photo he's about 12 days old. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
My second project is a painting of my daughter. I worked from a photo of her in Mexico (as you can she she's sporting a nice sunburn). In the photo she's about 10 months old.
That's all for now. I think I might try painting some birds next or maybe an elderly person..
