Here is a new painting I just finished. It's the first in a series of paintings I'm doing from a vintage photo I found of a class of children dressed up in adult clothes. The paintings will be debuting this October at the San Luis Obispo Open Studios Tour.
On a side note, Mincy kept calling him Danny, and when I said that I'd named him Tommy, he said I couldn't name him that because he knew a kid in school when he was little named Tommy and he was a jerk. I told him it was my painting and not our child, so he didn't get to help pick the name. This is an example of important arguments we have in the studio.
