New Painting Update

This blog entry is dedicated to my amazing husband, Marc Stone, who agreed to go out of town two weekends ago without me to give me time to paint away towards some looming deadlines. This is a big deal and the painting time was greatly appreciated, something about being alone really allows me to get down to brass tacks and paint. The LOOMING which I referred to is AWESOME, and I will be posting soon about the deadlines...but I want to keep a sense of suspense. So in the meantime, checkout some of the new work that I have made during and since that weekend. I painted my brother with a gun in one, the painting is based on a photo of the same subject, but the decision surprised me after the fact. I think there is nothing like the act of creating that suspends judgement and produces surprising results. I am curious to hear what he thinks about it, as we are both not gun people these days.
