Portrait with Fox

Here is today’s painting with some detail pictures because it’s been a while since I’ve worked in a larger format.

Happy New Year! My blog stats reported that I posted on average 2 posts a week during 2010. I aim to double that in 2011. So, here we go:

This afternoon I began working on three small oil paintings inspired by the drawing below. They are still in the beginning stages though, so you won’t see them for a while.┬áToday you get a drawing from yesterday’s laboring.

I’m headed off tomorrow on a week-long trip during which it is my goal to post one wee drawing a day (depending on my internet access of course). So stay tuned for some fun sketches of the following week’s adventures!
