Oak Man finished

First let me apologize for such a poor photo.  It is slightly out of focus.  Not too bad, but I am doing this quickly before it gets too dark.  I just finished Oak Man and had to share the outcome.  A bit late but, that seems the way life is of late.  Anyway, here he is and you can get am idea of how it looks.  I will be taking better pictures of him later in the month when I can get to the studio.

I used some of the same techniques that were used in the tree spirit piece in the last post.  Many layers of paint and glaze.  I love this process and will probably keep exploring this technique a bit further now that I have several under my belt so to speak.  Truthfully this is the one thing that has sustained me the last few weeks.  I go to such a happy place when I am working on my art.  There are so many ideas I can't seem to get them all going.  Thank goodness for sketch books and journals.

Oh, I am thinking of offering an expanded version of my acrylic mediums class this winter after the holidays.  What do you all think?  Would any of you be interested in that?  It would be in January after all the holiday madness is over.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the idea.

I hope you all have a great weekend out there.  I hope to post a few more in progress pics of some small pieces I am trying to finish before I start new stuff.  Best laid plans as they say.  Love you all and see ya on the flip side.
