progress on my Mike painting

I thought it would be fun to share my progress on Mike. I am doing more of a real portrait with no exegeration. It is a challenge for me and I welcome that. The final value study of mike has a weird looking left eye, just because I really wanted to see the detail to tranfer to canvas.

Dear God Lead Me thru these trying times!

Hello everyone!
I know this is not art related, but as you know I have a wonderful family that God has blessed me with. I am soo greatful for everything God has made for me in my life. The video really makes me take a step back at my self and see the whole picture of how I need to support my family with both love and  be the supportive husband and father God has called me to be! I can see how me taking a advanced Oil Painting portrait class with Thomas Fluharty to advance my artist trade might look as a wrong time issue, negative and even a selfish act. I am not sure if I have shared this with you, but I feel God has not only died for me, but has giving me a wonderful family that I am called to be the strong spiritual leader, and a gift to create art to build his kingdom here on his earth! I am also torn because even with these trying times we all have, we need to fight even harder to get work. I have been praying and asking the lord what to do, and I deeply feel I will be able to gloriful god (which I do in everything) and help support my family even more, by adding high end portraits to my portfolio! Please dear God help me, Amen!
P.S. Thank You to my wife for her constant support and love!

Taking a new Class with Thomas Fluharty

I got some great news and I am so thrilled about my new adventure of learning! You guessed it... I am going back to take some specialty classes to advance my work on Thomas Fluharty is one of my favorite Illustrators and he does alot of different mediums, but when started working in Oils using the Dutch flemish style, he knew he had found his ultimate medium! He uses Walnut Oil as medium which helped his paint dry faster and is less yellowing than linseed medium, and there is more than just painting. I order some paints and materials. You will see more to come.  God is great, and I have faith he will help me  learn and advance in kingdom thru my work! Good night everyone!
