Let It Glow...

Happy Holidays to you all...I just finished this yesterday afternoon via my palette knife remembering Christmas of old. Who doesn't remember staring into the Toy Store hoping Santa would fulfill your wish list?

I hope you enjoy.

Holiday Portrait Demo and Workshop

Thank you to The Westlake Village Art Guild in California for inviting me to demo at it's full house Holiday dinner meeting last night.

A lot 'festiveness' to get painted in a short 90 minute demo but my palette knife helped me get there for a quick finish of the festive head piece toward the end.  Another 90 minutes would have been great!

This review just in!

Thank you Johanna for the wonderful way you broke down your process last night!  I loved the mis-en-place concept and seeing how you built depth in your painting while keeping your original intent with your lights and darks!  Hearing your insights on painting portraits and working with clients was also very helpful!!!  What a great evening for all of our members to learn!
