    I’ve finally got all of my painting scans pieced together and uploaded to my portfolio, so I thought I’d give you a quick rundown of what is on display with more quality images than the initial window display photo in my “Now on Exhibit” post.

    I posted the Great Blue Heron scan here in my blog because the image in my portfolio is really pretty small.

    Here are all the thumbs (linked to their painting details in my portfolio):

    Now On Exhibit!

    If you’d like to “walk around”, click the pic for the (not narrated) video, walking up to the display and all that fun stuff you would get to do if you were HERE. (Update: I converted the thing to a windows media file and it’s much smaller and faster loading, sorry about that humongo file!) I’ll get back over there when the tags go up, in the evening, when there isn’t a funky glare from the street.

    These are all available for purchase, so if you’re interested in any of them you can contact me for pricing and I can give you the number to call MidCoast Fine Arts to purchase through the gallery.

    Violet Monochromatic : Jayden

    “You’re turning violet, Violet!” kept going through my head during my Chickeymonkey’s purple portrait painting session today. Of course the moment I completed Caitlin’s yesterday, she was right beside me saying “paint me NOW.” She couldn’t wait to be purple! And now, she is my little purple Chickeymonkey.

    This is the final portrait in this series of six oil paintings for my exhibit. I’ve got quite a lot of work to do yet, but it does feel good to have this whole concept finally down on canvas to giggle over. It’s a happy series, playful – joyful – colorful kids. Here they all are in my studio together:

    Number 5 of 6, my very own gigglehead Catybug in a pretty blue monochromatic portrait. I won’t tell you what she was giggling about, she’d probably disown me, or at least frown really big and cross her arms. (You know, she’s ten.)

    Did you know that I offer a custom 8″ x 8″ monochromatic portrait package for just $140? You can see my portrait packages right here, if you wanna look.

    Green Monochromatic : Evan

    Here’s Evan, he’s the fourth of six 10″ x 10″ pieces in this series of monochromatic paintings that will be on exhibit. Two more to go in this series and then I’ll be completing Kiki and then – last but definitely not least, the Heron.

    Yellow Monochromatic : Austin

    Halfway done now – this is my little yellow dude, Austin. He’s number three of six in the series.

    (Can you see where I’m going with this?)

    Other tidbits – this is my 16th painting of the year (47 days into the year). I have 11 days and 11 hours to have all of my exhibit pieces ready to hang, and either 5 or 17 more paintings to complete, depending on how things go over the next few days.

    Red Monochromatic : Alex

    2007

    One in a series of six for my exhibit, I was up late lastnight finishing this red monochromatic portrait of a sweet young lady – her name is Alex (everyone say HI to Alex!). This series will all be 10″ x 10″ square paintings in oil. I’ll be working on the next one (or two) in the series today.

    Painterly tip: The secret to getting a light red without it becoming pink is this: cadmium red, flesh tint, titanium white.

    Stacie in Green

    2007

    Here’s a fun 10″ x 10″ monochromatic oil portrait of Stacie I just completed. Stacie is an enthusiastic teenager with bright blue eyes that I photographed for this portrait last weekend. She asked for greens – lime being her favorite color. When I started working the piece, I decided to leave her eye color alone since they’re such a beautiful shade of blue – and I love the way they pop against the lime.

    These are quick paintings, and since I couldn’t continue the lovebirds (indigo isn’t dry yet), I decided to spend a few hours doing this one. These don’t require an underpainting, so they only take a little while to complete, painting wet-in-wet.

    My monochromatic paintings consist of one primary color (green), one light (yellow) and one dark (indigo) to contrast. Including her original eye color brought my color palette to 5 colors for this painting (french ultramarine & white).

    Makes ya smile, doesn’t she? She’s a pretty young lady, sweet as pie, too.
