Ryker and Klimt

I finished Ryker and I'm excited to see what he thinks of himself. I am a big fan of Gustav Klimt. I tried to infuse a little of that design element in the background. You can't tell as much from the picture,but I did use gold metalic paint. Its about 24"x 24" oil on birch panel.

I swear this was not planned! Everything is the same! The hands, the eyes and the hair. The inspiration is clear: Blaize will be painted as the Mona Lisa or ... the Mona Lisa will be painted as Blaize.

which Blaize do I do?

Not sure which one to paint. I think she looks like the Mona Lisa in the first pic...what do you think?

It's a boy!!!!

I just realized that this is one of the very few paintings I have done of a boy. Still up on the easel of course. The hardest part about painting sometimes is knowing when to stop. Maybe one more session on this one. This is for my aunt kris and uncle Joe, Its a painting of my cousin Ryker. My other cousin Blaize will be next. Hope you guys like it!

million dollar camera=million dollar pictures!

Thank you mom and dad for lending me the best camera ever! I just couldn't get excited about painting with the pictures I had taken. I had to go back for another photo shoot. This time I was armed and dangerous. Now, I have too many good pictures to choose from instead of not enough. I will get painting as soon as school is out and I have more time and energy.....can't wait. I promise I will give you back your camera :)
