I started doing daily paintings in March of this year. I have decided to take the plunge and put myself out there.I have a bunch of paintings to post. I will just start them with todays date. I haven't painted for many years and the joy of painting is returning. This painting is from a photo of my son who is now 23. I know the flesh tones are a bit washed out and chalky. I ended up scraping most of the paint off of this 5x7 black gessoed board, to give it a more blurred effect as an experiment, but I kind of like it.
