Why Paint When I have a Camera?

Hi, this is Peggy.
<-------No, not the guy over there! <-----
I am an artist, I am learning. I find painting what I see or imagine a challenge & at the same time I find it relaxing. Crazy? It could be all the lead in the paint. But, for now, I have both my ears. Hours can fly by without once thinking about politics for instance. ;> At the moment I am very interested in painting portraits. I need more subjects/models! I have not gotten up the nerve to just ask someone on the street if I can take their photo to use to paint them. I need the practice!

Here is what I have done so far. I did this last week while he was watching the Bears football game with eyes fixed on the game. This took me a few hours and I have never enjoyed football more than that day!
As you can see I need to get better at taking photos of my art the glare is too much! And that is WHY I paint instead of using a camera.11/7/07

Inspired by Milvi I painted this when I got home with palette knife technique

This was fun! I hope the painting on the wall behind is not too distracting.

November Portrait

November Portrait
I painted Santa(Uncle Bill McDonald) as he was on his way out my door. Since this is a busy month for him I had to paint FAST !!! Thanks Santa for letting me paint your portrait during your busy time of year! Oh! don't worry about the raindeer tracks they cleaned up just fine, cannot even tell they were here. :-)

Rough in of Greta's Portrait - April

Stage One - Block In I do like this but if I work it anymore I am just making mud. I will need to wait until it dries a bit before I continue. I was experimenting with different tones.
