"Porgie in a Jam Pot"

Oil on museum quality Ampersand Gessobord panel
8" x 10"

 I am sure even my staunchest followers have long given up hope of seeing new work coming out of the studio and posted herein and who could blame them?  No, I haven't hung up my brushes nor have I run off to join the circus.  So what have I been up to since last August?  Well, there were quite a few paintings that just didn't get posted.  More importantly, I have been polishing my shingle and concentrating on my first love, commissioned portraiture.  That has meant more time in the museum and less time in the studio.  Also the studio work has been more experimentation than finished work.  If you're still with me, stay tuned.  Good things are coming.

This is a fun painting and makes my day, Mark! And I'm looking forward to seeing your new direction when you are ready to share.
