Oil on 12"x14" panel. Painted for my friend, Ligaya. Her love and compassion for animals has been great inspiration, whenever I feel myself getting cross at one of my little pals, I think of her and quickly adjust.
Lately I've been watching some really fine painters on YouTube demonstrate their techniques. This is the internet at it's finest. I especially love watching the academe painters teach, they explain what they're doing as they paint and share their philosophies about painting, and not at all dogmatic. All this new instruction is causing some pretty major changes in my painting, it feels like I'm starting all over, but now painting is even more interesting and challenging.
