Moon Dance

Hi Everyone! The other day I was working on an abstract background for the beginning of what I thought was going to be a new wildlife painting. But for some reason I just couldn't connect with any animal for the piece. Thankfully the idea of doing a children's illustration in this cold wax medium dawned on me. The results I think are just so much fun! Working in cold wax is highly enjoyable and also very time consuming. the background part is quick but doing detailed work is not. However the results have so much character that it just may be worth the extra effort. Can't wait to do another one! This piece is 16" x 20" - cold wax and oils on panel and it's called Moon Dance. I hope you're having a great day and thanks for looking!

Painting Finished!

Well I finally put my butt in the chair and finished this painting! I do have some glazing to do once it dries enough but for the most part it is done. I had a lot of fun doing this painting, all the little details were so much fun, I hope you think so too. I'm calling it "Song of the Spirit Fish". Oil on paper on masonite.
