Last year I held a Facebook contest in order to get more followers.
Whoever brought the most people to my page, would win a free 12" x 12" portrait.
Well, after a too long of a wait, I have finally completed the portrait! He's the father of my good friend and muse, Tress. I hope she likes it!!!
I painted him on a wood panel. Wood panel is a new thing for me. I love the smoothness of it. I also love how the grain of the wood comes through the paint when you look at it from certain angles.
I knew Tress, of anyone I know, would be the most receptive to me trying out the experiment on her.
