Just started reading The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs.  So far so good.

Portrait in Yellow

oil on canvas 33.0 x 25.4 cm (13" x 10")

This portrait is about two weeks old.  The sitter was excellent.  She was very still, which of course makes the painting easier.  

It would have been nice to have had more time with this one.  What you're seeing is more or less the lay in for a more complete painting.  Nevertheless, I like it.

Loomis Copy

Copy of an Andrew Loomis drawing done while sort of watching football.

I'm working on this painting at the moment, trying to remove some telephone poles.  The sky may have to be repainted in order to completely remove them.  Time will tell.  I may have to let the painting dry before doing any more work.
