Here is a portrait that I am currently working on. It is the size of a door and I am doing it in charcoal. So far, I am pretty proud of it and I will post the finished product next week or so =]

Attempt at Self Portrait

So during Open House I finished a self portrait of myself I did in oil paint. Sadly, it doesn't look like me at all. It was my first ever attempt at a self portrait in oil paint. I don't care for it that much, but I do really like the eyes. They look like mine. I finally got the "natural" down on this one.

In A Pumpkin Mood

So my next project was a painting of a pumpkin. I did an oil painting of a pumpkin. Not going to lie - I had a lot of trouble with it. I just couldn't get the colors right. I -for some odd reason - mix colors that are cool, usually blueish / purplish colors. I want to get a more "natural" color selection now. That's my goal for my next painting.
