Ryan PT-16 Underpainting In Progress No. 1


Ryan PT-16 |  24 x 24  |  Underpainting In Progress No. 1

I came across this Ryan trainer at the  National Championship Air Races in Reno back in 2012. I've been holding onto this photograph since then. I know aircraft art has a rather limited audience, but it's my favorite subject to paint, so here we go. I know this will take a while to complete (there are a lot of rivets in this image) so I thought it would be a good painting to include some In Progress shots. Here's number one.

Bread  |  16 x 16  |  oil on panel


My last painting of 2020. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad. Anyway, Karen really wanted me to paint some bread again, so I obliged. One of my more funner subjects to paint.

It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, "it's been a strange year". I'm very fortunate that I have my painting to keep me centered. I'm keeping a glass half full kind of attitude these days, believing that 2021 will, for the most part, prove to be a less interesting year (for all of us). Before I go I'd like to thank everyone who visited my social media sites these last twelve months. It's very encouraging to see the "likes" and read your wonderful comments. I'll be back here again in January with a somewhat larger piece that should warrant some "work in progress" posts. 

So, Happy Holidays . . . and have a Happy NEW Year!
