Finishing up a couple of portrait commissions before The Big Move. This is Lyle, the little brother of Iris. Such great subjects to paint!
Painting in between packing, getting estimates from movers, processing the sale of two homes, arranging for renovations in the new home, selling stuff we no longer need on craigslist, getting ready for an Open Studio/Art Sale next week, etc, etc. NOT easy to get into that creative zone with all those other things fighting for space in my mind, but somehow it's all getting done. One more Up Close & Personal commission to go, then I will pack up the studio and will have a few weeks of moving and settling into the new space in California before I can get back to painting!
