Lakeshore Scene

I realize there have been crickets chirping over here. It is not for lack of doing anything. But more-so how incredibly busy I managed to make myself over the last few months! Much of the busy-ness has not been because of artistic ventures, but I did manage to get another custom order done! This is an 11 x 14″ canvas done with acrylic paint. It was based off of an actual photo with a few extra details thrown in at my clients request. First time ever actually working straight from a photo. I was nervous at first, I’m not sure why exactly, but it turned out good. Anyway here are some WIP photos. Sorry for the lighting in these. I paint at night when all is quiet. Enjoy folks. And have a wonderful New Year!

And the final piece:

The little details were done with my smallest brush and required a very steady hand. My favorite detail is the vintage brass letters on the light pole.

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. Mine was not rushed or hurried in any way. The best kind!

  1. I came by to return the blog visit and thank you for taking time to leave a comment on mine. What a treat to find you are a painter! I scrolled through a number of posts but had to stop and comment on this one. I loved seeing the step by step building of the piece. It turned out great and reminded me of how calming water can be.
