Carlé brought Traveling Hope to visit us. Verrry exciting for the kids. I didn't want to send her home covered in paint so I suggested she rather try her hand at posing.
My Young Boy (oil on canvas) 2009
It's a series. "My Old Boy", "My Girl" and now this. Terri just doesn't want to let these ones of Sheth go. Progress shots
Erica (oil on canvas) 2009
Terri's mom. Next time I hopefully won't have to struggle with a low quality image. Progress shots
My Girl (oil on canvas) 2009
I wanted to do a series when I painted "My Old Boy". Hannah is the second. I'm busy with Sheth, "My Young Boy". Progress shots

Eryn (oil on canvas) 2008
Tracy's niece, commissioned for her sister. I love painting portraits.
Eryn, Study 2 (acrylic on canvas) 2008
When I stopped painting, it was only to reach for another canvas. This one I stopped in the pre-oil stage. Hopefully I wouldn't run out before I got the final one done for Tracy.
Eryn, Study 1 (oil on canvas) 2008
Tracy commissioned a portrait of Eryn, her niece, for her sister, Missie. I tried something different and quite liked the result, at which point I stopped painting.
Ryan (oil on canvas) 2008
Fourth of four for... well, for Ryan, if you didn't see the previous posts. If you don't 'get' this one, just keep looking.
Tracy (oil on canvas) 2008
Third of four for Ryan.
Catching Rain Drops (oil on canvas) 2008
This is my idea of a still life. See, I don't just paint portraits. One day I might paint a landscape as well.
First Joy, Increased (oil on canvas) 2008
Painted from the first painting of "First Joy", it was soon after this that I was told that I had painted another artist's painting and not a photograph. Oops.
The Wonder Of It (oil on canvas) 2008
No, I don't know who this is or who he belongs to. I did manage to get permission from whoever took the photograph. Probably the parent. Anyway, it was beautiful so I painted it.
Jessica (oil on canvas) 2008
Second of four for Ryan.
Alex (oil on canvas) 2008
First of four for my good friend, Ryan Jaap.
Joy II (oil on canvas) 2008
My Old Chair (oil on canvas) 2008
I started this a few months before the swift kick. I took advantage of the burst of creativity and finished it. My Hannah girl on an old folding chair.
Here I Am (oil on canvas) 2008
I enjoyed the emotion in "First Joy" and in my search I (well, it was actually Terri) came across this. It turned out to be a photo of Annalet's father, so she soon laid claim to the painting.
First Joy (oil on canvas) 2008
I stopped painting for a while. Life had got in the way. Fortunately, Terri, bless her, gave me a kick up the rear end. About September last year I painted "First Joy" in the studio of Leonie Brown.
