Mrs. Watanabe is such a nice warm lady. She is a long time orchid club friend of my parents. She allowed me to photograph her last year when I was helping my Dad sell at the Manoa Orchid Show. So gracious of her. I have been working on the painting off and on for the past year with Stanley Goldstein on Monday nights.This is a 12x16 oil on archival linen panel.
Louie is a commission for a birthday gift. If you recall, he was part of my studio tour on the previous post. He is a small dog with a big personality. At least that is what I read into him. I have never met Louie in person. 6x6 acrylic on cradled wooden panel.
