A Good Time Was Had by Al


This is a painting I did a while ago. It's my brother-in-law from a photo I took when he visited us for Jazz Fest. I didn't have time to paint today, and tomorrow I have choir practice, and Tuesday I will be packing all my art stuff in my car. Because on Wednesday I drive to Salado, Texas for a workshop with Carol Marine. YEAH!!! I'm so excited. Now you know why I won't be posting for a few days. But I plan to post some from the workshop. So look for them.

How lucky are you!!! I'm very envious that you get to spend the day with Carol Marine. Her work is marvelous but so is YOURS! I love the jovial expression and the hand is rendered perfectly. Don't you love a man who is secure enough with his manhood to wear purple?

What a great portrait. I feel like I've just met your brother-in-law! Love that purple shirt.

Carol Marine is a great painter-- Have a great workshop!

Hilarious title and fabulous portrait. I tried to leave this comment before; sorry if this is a repeat.

WONDERFUL portrait, Carolyn! It makes me smile just looking at it.

This is really great! It's colorful, narrative, jovial, and very well done. I do love a good portrait that tells more than just what your subject looks like. I am working on that myself...not quite there yet.
