Portrait of Leslie Lockhart

I want to say right off the bat that I accidentally mixed in some acrylic paint with my oils in the early stages of this one, hence the flaky look to the surface. If it were a commission I would have started over with a new clean canvas but I wasn't even sure it was my final version. (this being the second attempt) So, thank goodness tonight is the final deadline or I was tempted to start again with a third canvas. This is 11 x 14 oil (plus acrylic :) on gallery wrap canvas. Happy New Year to all!

Fat Fender Chevy

My husband has been wanting a 1955 or 1956 fat fender Chevy truck like this since he first laid eyes on one. He likes the split window and wants one in International Harvester Green. I'm not sure he'll ever really buy one because he enjoys dreaming about it so much. This particular truck is by the side of Highway 71 between Austin and Houston. I think my husband knows where each one of these is, all over Texas. So I thought I'd paint him one. But I can paint him another one if anyone buys it at the Maranda Pleasant Gallery Artbox Show this Saturday night. :) $100 with a portion going to charity. 12 x 12, acrylic on 2 inch deep cradled wood panel.
