"Tangier Sounds"

Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel 8" x 8"

I know what you're thinking - "That's it!?! The first painting of the new year; the first painting off the easel in a month is an oyster painting!?! Where's the new series? Where's all the pent up inspiration gushing forth? Oysters...OYSTERS!!! We want something new; something fresh. We've seen this bit; what else ya got? Oops...sorry. Actually that is what I'm thinking and have been for a while now, which accounts for the lack of work on these pages. In my defense, oysters are fun to paint and just picking up the brushes after a month is a step in the right direction. Look for new work soon. Happy New Year!

I'm new to your site. I'm continually astounded by your talent. I came some months ago looking for tips on how to paint a dachsund.
Would you ever consider posting some details of your process?

Thanks, Jeanna. I'll see what I can do about a tutorial in the future.
