I like this one!

I've been feeling a bit on ennui recently. Maybe it's the show coming down, who knows. But I'm finally excited about a painting. He's holding a splinter of the Holy Cross in his prosthetic. The banner will say so. Perhaps in Latin. Possible title: Reliquary.

This weekend

Worked on two pieces this weekend - a new one with much smaller figures, which I don't really like painting. But I persevered and I think it's going OK. I still have the clown's face to finish.  The other is a commission, a portrait of mother and daughter. I have the composition and underpainting done. Will work on it more after it dries.

This guy is the little one. The canvas is 20 x 28"-ish.
