This handsome guy's name is Bruder. I'm commissioned to paint him in oil and he's due by Christmas also.
First thing to do is draw him, which I may get started today. Our 2nd granddaughter was born yesterday (yay!) and we will be taking a week to visit her, so there will be some delays before I can get back to my painting projects. Will keep you posted.
Starting a portrait of this little cutie-pie. She's wearing her daddy's shoes (so adorable!)
Coming along pretty well. Needs to be done by Christmas. I'll post it's progress later.
After working on my illustrated children's book, "Head in the Clouds" for over two years, I've finally finished it and have sent out my submissions to a few publishers I think will be a good fit. Now it's the 4 to 6 month waiting game!
In the meantime, I made the book as a Christmas present to my granddaughter. Can't wait to read it to her!
