Two beginnings

Very different. The landscape reminds me that I hate to paint landscapes, while the portrait appeals to my interest in rebels. Notice that this Gibson Girl has a black eye, which I will be playing up in subsequent iterations.

Almost final and work in progress

I believe I am almost finished with the “Wrestlers” painting but want to add some more careful linear elements to define the figures. The painting I am working on now is “Family Portrait” which combines images of my father as a child with images taken from Library of Congress photographs of other sentient beings worthy of compassion. I am beginning to blend both of my styles, the more realistic with the expressive, in one work. So far, I am happy with the results.
