Sister Brunch: Work in Progress

This painting was an unexpected test of my perseverance and commitment. Ha! I guess the better you know someone’s face, the harder it is to detach yourself and paint what you see. And in the end, I didn’t. I made some choices where I decided my version looked more like Brenna than the actual photo of Brenna and I have no regrets!

Oil Portrait of my Dad

I painted this portrait of my dad and finished it up today. In the interest of blogging more of my projects and not just throwing them on social media (It’s so easy to not blog! ha!), here is a bit of the process.

This Portrait of My Grandma

I can’t even believe I painted this! I have struggled with portraits for years. I only started oil painting 7 months ago (except one painting of an apple in high school). I only did my first self portrait 6 months ago. The glasses might be asymmetrical but I love this painting because it looks JUST LIKE my Grandma.

New York Brownstone Watercolour Portrait

It's pretty much my dream to have a brownstone in New York. This is a recently finished commission, but I was drooling with jealousy the whole time! Everything, even the doors, is so beautiful and cool. ​

Ahhh, sigh of envy. ​

​On the plus side, this was a pleasure to paint, and I'm so happy with it. Happily, the owner agreed to let me add it to my portfolio, so I can share it with all of you! 

Now, back to painting flowers... I've moved on to apple blossoms.​
