This is the original reference photo
This painting was very fun to do. I enjoyed the change in subject matter and the strength of the composition in the original reference photo that didn’t take much altering. The commissioner wanted his face to look more recent, as the original reference photo was taken about 10 years ago.

This is my latest painting, finished 11/19/13 I loved the composition that the telephone wires created. I also was fascinated with the numerous birds that were perched on every surface. The original is 11×16, making each bird aprox 1/2″ but I attempted to make each one individual and pack on as much detail as I could.
