My husband and I spent last week celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary in Bridgeport, California where he and his work buddies fished and I painted. It was a dream vacation, where I was able to paint to my heart's content, while NOT worrying about people "waiting for me to finish"! During our visit, I was able to complete 4 paintings, AND spend time getting reference material for future paintings in the studio. I think this arrangement is going to work out pretty well! In fact, we're going back next month!
This 8"h by 6"w oil is of my husband and is not for sale, but the others posted on my website are! Take a look and contact me if interested!
