My 2017 New Year Resolution of painting all portraits via palette knife is off to a bright start.
I went large format for the first time ever this week in a life sitting painting my pal Keri and it was exhilarating. My brain had to really work hard to get out of its' comfort zone. At first I wasn't sure I could do it.
I now realize I have been building up to this for a long time.
Thank you Art Spirit.
Stay tuned. It's going to be a year like no other in my art life.
