Still deciding. Oils or Acrylics. Oils or Acrylics. I just finished another Painted Caricature:

I struggled through with this using Acrylics because I love the bright colors of Acrylics. But the actual experience of using paints that dry so fast causing me to keep putting globs of hard gunky paint in the rag while I spend so much time nervously cleaning the brush which pulls me away from the Painting Zone is it worth it? I e I even tried an Acrylic paint Slow-Drying-Gel this time. Made it a litl better, but no where's near as pleasant to work with as Oils. I'm really an Oil Painter! Maybe they've come out with brighter Oil Paints now - It is 2008 you know. Anyway, I struggled with this picture until the very end. As I finished adding color to the white flowers, my mood finally lifted. Every time I see this painting, I can't help but smile.

And here's a quick picture of the girl's mother:

Face-Painting

Posted Jan 2008

I'm so disappointed. Last week I worked on getting a data-transfer system onto my computer so I could at least see the crummy pictures I get from my cellphone.

I just tried it for my first time. But I couldn't find the pictures on my computer. So I'm still working on that.

So what else do I have here? How about photos of some faces that I painted recently:

Glad I got that out of my system. What ever happened to EXAGGERATION??? I still had time to draw in the studio here. Because tonight's party starts at 8:30 pm - at Manor East in Massapequa (local for me). So I revisited those recent photos and played with some of the things I saw:
