I had the pleasure of completing the below painting for a bride -to be given as a wedding gift to her new husband. (Apparently their first date was at the Santa Monica Pier and it -the date- was kind of a flop...So this is a reminder that awkward beginnings can sometimes lead to something quite wonderful.)

This portrait was commissioned by my friend Troy. This piece is one of the largest portraits that I've painted -and I really enjoyed doing it. I put off starting it for quite a while but once I dove in it nearly painted itself.
Here is a close-up of little Eliot:

I recently had the opportunity to be a part of a group show at Gallery Godo up in Glendale. It was a really good show- prob one of the best I've been a part of thus far. Lots of good art and a bustling turn out for the opening reception.
A sampling of all 20 artists' work from this show will also be brought in to be a part of the Sept. 13th Los Angeles Down Town Art Walk. If you're an LA-dweller, you should definitely get down there to check out the eclectic and inspiring collection.
This is on of six beach pieces that are currently hanging in the Ten Women (Main St, Santa Monica) window. They'll be there for a month...Hopefully someone snatches a few of 'em up!
