Let's see. Since the last time I checked in here, I've been doing my normal studio illustration and private commission work throughout the year for various clients. In August and September, I went to Austria to give a presentation at an artist's convention. In October I got married, and went to Europe again for our honeymoon to England, Belgium and France. And I have been oil painting for pleasure whenever I get the time. Most months, I lead an informal outing of plein air painters with the San Diego chapter of the California Art Club. And most Saturdays, I paint portrait studies from models with a small group of artists in La Jolla.
Here's some highlights from 2014:
Commemorating the passing of local legend Tony Gwynn.
A canine watercolor portrait
A few oil painted studies from life...
This portrait was an unusual request from a local gallery. But was fun!
Giving a seminar at a small artist convention in Vienna.
Enjoying Bruges with my new wife.
