Rejected from the American Impressionist show in South Carolina.  Once again I didn't make it into the club…maybe next year.  The let down will last a few days and usually forces me to try and get better at painting. 

As if I really have any other choice.

I worked some more on the Orthodontist's painting, blasting in four figures per request. This will need a little more refining during the week and then I could present him with an image to see what he thinks.

  1. Hey, Richard

    Have you ever looked at Robert Shetterly's portraits? (Americans Who Tell the Truth)

    He has done portraits of some folks you might recognize -- eg, Tim DeChristopher, Terry Tempest Williams, Ed Abbey -- all environmentalists (goddamned, o f course)

    What do you think of the portraits themselves?

    I don't know much about painting, but I can at least say that the likenesses are quite good.
