Two new Pros paintings
Oil on canvas
12"-h x 9"-w
Work safe! :-)

Sorry I've been out of touch for so long--RL and a sick pet have kept me away from LJ. Don't see that changing for a while, so I'm going to post a number of new things before I have to run off again. :-/

These are both oil paint on canvas board and basically monochromatic portraits. I used a mixture of burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and white.


Introspective Ray



Sweet, sweet Bodie

Thanks for looking!

I must confess to not looking at the other paintings, but Bodie and Doyle are lovely! I especially like the way you've captured Doyle here, such a serious look! Thank you! *g*

Thank you for coming by! I'm sorry to be so absent from things. I hope RL will slow down someday. Hope you're doing well! Glad you liked the paintings. :-) I'll have more B&D in a few months. :-)

Thanks, Hon! You're such a sweetheart to come by and comment on all these--especially since I suck at reciprocating. Jake has had another episode--his left side was affected this time and he couldn't walk at all. But he's fighting his way back to where he can walk and stand for a bit on his own. :-) Hope your puppy is doing well and is probably really glad you're home safe. :-)

Thanks, Hon! I guess painting is a lot like writing--you keep learning something new all the time. :-)It's what keeps us at it, I think. :-) Thanks for your incredibly kind comments. I'm sorry to be so out of touch--things in RL have been so crazy this year. :-/ Hope you are doing well!

This was lovely to find this evening. And reminds me that I need to get to my favourite framer and have him put Doyle in a setting worthy of your work.

BTW, I'm at work on the edits for the novel, though not as fast as I'd like. (It's been a hell of a summer.) Shall drop you a line after the film fest is over.

Oh, yes, you must frame Doyle. ;-) Good luck with the novel--I'm thinking of you. I'd heard in a roundabout way that RL was stressful for you and that we might not see you at EMC. :-/ I wish you the best and will wait to hear from you when things are more settled. :-) Thanks for stopping by! It's great to hear from you. ;-)

OMG!!! Those are fantastic! So beautiful the both of them and so life like... *is waiting for Doyle to wink and Bodie to smirk*

Hope you don't mind if I skip the other ones but I'm a one fandom girl after all *G* Though I know without looking that they're just as good as those two.

Thank you so much for sharing!

These are so well done, especially Doyle! They seem even more sensible detailed than the last Pros paintings I saw and this a hard thing to say as your work is always excellent! The light captured on Dyles curls or the wavy hair of Bodie, the clothes, his brillant smile. I also like what you did in the other fandoms. I look forward for what you've planned to do!

Sorry to take so long to post more Pros stuff--I've been working on a large number of illustrations for four different Starsky and Hutch zines so I was led astray for a few months. Now I get to go back to Pros! :-) First I have to finish a portrait of Ray for someone and then I'm going to do a series of Ray and Bodie in their fencing costumes. :-) Yum!

Thanks again!

::sighs happily:: I love your stuff, did I mention that? Absolutely love it.

I especially love this Doyle one. Poor Doyle. He looks so reflective, like at the end of one of *those* episodes, where there was angst along the way, and a bittersweet (or outright sad) ending. Perfect.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you again, sweetie! I'm so glad you liked these too. :-) I think of Doyle as being normally introspective, but that expression is even more so than usual.

Take care! Hope you and the kitties are all well! Talk to you again soon, I hope!

I love the portrait of Bodie. Simple, but lovely.

The way you painted Doyle's curls is cool. (I think I need to study your technique a bit *g* ). I like the touch of blue.

I really like your colour technique but there is something very classy about your monochrone or almost monochrome portraits, that I love.
