Almost Home

Amost Home

I spotted this man carrying his heavy suitcase down a dusty road while on this month’s Virtual Paintout. I was curious about him. Where was he going? Where had he come from? I couldn’t find out his story, so I painted him and gave him a new one. 5×7 oil on gessoboard panel. Available here.

Virtual Paintout in Valparaiso, Chile

On Alamo St.I’ve always wanted to participate in the Virtual Paintout, so this month I did. The location for February is Valparaiso, Chili. This colorful house on Alamo St. caught my eye. I used my artistic license to make a few changes, like replacing the bleach bottle and plastic bag  with a flowering plant. 🙂  You can see the view I painted from here.  I enjoyed virtually walking the streets of Valparaiso. There were colorful houses, wandering dogs, and lots of graffiti. I’m already looking forward to next month’s location.

On Alamo St. is 6″x6″ on museum quality gessoboard. It may be framed or displayed as is on a small easel. It is available at Dailypaintworks.
