In the Studio Today... Christina Richard

Christmas Day, 2008
I thought of entitling this post, "Christmas Duck", but that is not really so... Although this is my Christmas Day post, the duck is a pet, and lives on Salt Spring Island, near Vancouver. I am delighted to have my dear friend, whom I worked with in the animation and edutainment industry in the 90's, now visiting and working in Marin for a few months. She brought me a copy of their local paper with a great feature about her work. Click on the images below to read about Christina.

In the Studio Today... Cabin Commission

Tuesday, December 16, 2008Monday, December 15, 2008
Monday, December 8, 2008Commission in progress; 12" x 16", o/c. I am working on two paintings of this lakeside cabin for a client. The client chose a photo with great shadows from the trees. There is a red bicycle in the foreground, still unpainted, but when I put the red bike in the foreground, it will pop forward with warm color. It's a nice composition to work with. It's always great when clients come to me with their special photos!
