WIP painting for Russel

WIP painting for RusselAcrylic on wood. Thought a painting of a train hanging in a boy’s room would look cool painted on wood.

I am the new (volunteer) editor for my daughter’s PTA school newspaper, The Jefferson Journal. So, I haven’t been able to work on any paintings or drawings lately. Will get back to work on my son’s train painting tomorrow night. Haven’t worked on it in weeks. Hurricane Irene knocked out our power for a few days, then we went on a little family vacation. The Jefferson Journal is also lots of work (what did I get myself into volunteering for that?) – but I enjoyed working on it anyways.

will try and post a WIP (work in progress) on the train painting.

Painting for Russel

Just started a painting for my son. My daughter’s room is filled with paintings I made for her, and Russel only has one painting I made for him. He has always loved trains – so I’m going to paint a train. It will be 24″ x 36″ acrylic on plywood. Never painted anything like this. So, lets see how it turns out.
