An old friend gave me the canvas and his wife asked for a copy of this Matisse painting....she had a poster of it that had disintegrated and so I did a long lasting oil for them on linen canvas.....32x40" Forgery commisions accepted.....they will never be perfect....just very good
Well this is still in the works but I thought I would give it a preview....I see everything that needs to be tweeked....Such an incredibly beautiful place.... more studies of Paris to come .....watercolor..22x30"
What I liked about doing these paintings was that AJ never posed for me, and he really didn't pay any attention to what I was doing, so I didn't have to worry about him seeing the portraits or care about whether it was a good likeness or not....he looks very different in each one for the most part....watercolor 12x16"
I had just gotten stung by a bee after we went for a swim and I was waiting to see if I would have an allergic reaction...so I painted this scene....We are now in Paris and hope to do some painting here to show you....very tired right now....watercolor 12x16
This the view, one of many , from our cottage by the sea, in the Carribean now....87 degrees and the water is the same .....lots of swimming and painting...I am so inspired by tropical breezees and the look and feel of this foriegn place... more to come
