last post for 2009

The name of this post sounds like a dirge.  But I think it is a milestone.  I completed two paintings this afternoon which I think represent a step forward for me.  There is still much work to be done but there is improvement.  I have redone Ethan doing an ollie and Calvin on his skateboard.

Here is Ethan doing an ollie – without the tree in the background.  It looks better I think.  Actually I have painted a wash on his arms to warm them a little.

And here is Calvin skating off to surf with his friends.

Well that is all for 2009 I think.  As the last of the great party animals I am completing this listening to Olga Kern play Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1 which is heavenly music.
