Nathan in Lake Erie

Nathan 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel NFS

My nephew, last summer. He has shocking blond hair and odd club shaped hands. Kidding...about the hands. I thought I'd try a painting similar to my color pencil series: children at play. Love the colors, love the composition-- hands and facial features, not so much. May come back to this theme later!


  1. Diane, This is an outstanding painting! Love your brushwork! The face has just the right amount of suggested on the hands if you want , but I love it!

  2. Hi, I just found your blog! I really like this painting, the high key palatte. It seems to make the black rubber tube even more real.

    I also like your cat paintings, Layla looks like a wonderful pet!

  3. Robin, you rock. Elizabeth, thanks so much!
