I painted this tonight with our Portrait Painting Group. I think it was one of my more successful portraits but I want to work just a bit on the arm. What do you think?

Just dropping in...

This week is going to be a really busy one. I've gotten the approval on the commissioned watercolors that I'm doing for a hotel in Hawaii and the ARToberfest Show is about to break at the New Braunfels Art League. So much to do in so little time!

I've done the sketches and committed the first watercolor to paper. I'm just about to begin the painting of "Neill's Coral Tree" so I thought I'd post before I get too busy. The sketch above is the initial drawing that will be transferred to Twinrocker Watercolor Paper. I'll try to photograph the work as it progresses.

I hope to be able to post at least every other day so I don't get too far behind.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Our Open House was a lot of fun. Many friends came to wish us well and we had a great time!

On the same day, I received confirmation on a commission that I will be doing for the St Regis Princeville in Kauai, Hawaii. I am looking forward to working on the two watercolors which will be featured in the rooms at the resort. I hope I will be able to visit personally to see the originals installed there. One of the prints will be in every room of the resort!

I'll try to keep my progress posted on these two watercolors as I progress with them.

This is the BIG DAY...

Later today we'll be opening our doors to the public at Three Brushes!

I wish you could all be there to join in the fun. Since you can't, I'll post pictures of the space and the event.
See you soon!

After a busy week...

I've moved all of my paintings, canvases and painting equipment to the studio and tomorrow I'll put things in order. We should be ready to open the space up on Friday, Sept. 14 as planned.
And I'm happy to say that I'll be receiving the materials and purchase order on Tuesday for two commissioned watercolors. Just in time to break in my new studio space! Perfect!

"Beauty in the Beast"

I'll be painting two watercolors of Hawaiian flora for a hotel there and they will be made into prints to be hung in the guest rooms. The style will be similar to "Beauty in the Beast" (shown above) The originals will be installed in the model rooms. I will keep a record of my progress here.
Right now I'm going to have some dinner and relax and prepare for another week.
Happy painting!

Getting Ready!

The Three Brushes studio is getting close to being a real workspace! We've painted the gallery area and with a little clean up and rearranging, we'll be able to work there! It's been fun getting it ready but I'll be glad when we're able to sit at our easels and get to work. We have a little bit of painting left to do on the outside, some more equipment to move in, artwork to hang & we'll be ready to welcome everyone to our...
