Brutus, a German Shepherd Dog

This is Brutus, my step-son's dog. Painted from a picture of the dog taken by Breena O'Neill, his girlfriend.

A two hour portrait of Andre, size 16" x 20", completed from life.

Portrait of my neice

Here is a portrait I recently completed of my niece, Samantha. 11" x 14" oil on linen

Last few paintings of the year

I thoght I had better post a few of my recent works before the clock strikes 12 and it is 2009! I have been very lax about posting so I will make a resolution to post at least weekly in 2009. I usually paint 1-2 pieces a week now that I have had to return to work. Yes, sales are down 80% thanks to the economic downturn so I found a job that is fun and interesting and allows me to use my computer and graphic skills. Unfortunately it also limits my painting time so I am more choosy about my projects.
This is a Mandalay merchant I just finished. 11" x 14: oil on linen and "Mandalay Market", 16" x 12" oil on canvas.
