Happy Birthday Tony

Today is Thursday and that means painting class-yeah! A few weeks ago, our instructor Kim Morin Weineck, had us pick names out of a hat (kind of like Secret Santa, except not secret) and bring in 2 photo references for that person to paint. Tony picked my name. Here is one of the photos he brought in for me to paint. This is a photo of Tony.

And this is my painting of Tony in palette knife.

Today also happens to be Tony's birthday so I'm going to give the painting to him tonight. Shhhh. Don't tell him. And, this month, Tony's artwork will be featured at Perks, a cool coffee shop in Norwood Center. There is a reception this weekend. Check it out.
I also want to share with you the wonderful paintings Cindy did from the references I gave her as soon as I can get pictures of them. They are stellar. I loved this exercise. Great idea, Kim! It was really interesting to see what everyone did.

Hi Ann, I am so glad you thought that was a good exercise. I thought it could be a good way to get people out of a rut and it seems that it gave some of us a shot in the arm.

This year in class I hope to mix it up with some fun exercises from time to time. I can only hope for such good results as this go 'round.

And of course, Tony loved his gift. You were so generous and it was obviously appreciated.

Well done!
