Sisters--in-law: Commissioned Repaints for September

These two are off to their owner. Scarlett and Melanie back to back. No photoshop here. They are as you see them. It took almost a month to finish these two. I had to do them in between workdays (at night), listening to Bach (haha). Nothing relaxes you more than Bach I would say. Goodbye to these two. Sometimes when I repaint things commissioned I have that feeling of wishing they were mine instead. Gluttony I know. Like one friend said, yes, it feels like you're saying goodbye to something dear to you. I don't know why its that. All I know now is that they're going to a place where they be well cared for. Call me weird. I am. Now off to fix some old repaints specifically an old repaint of  Vivien Leigh and also decide which to send for a hair change.  The week has just begun and I am thinking of nothing but work, work, work. However, there is always something to look forward at the end of the day: coffee with a friend, repainting, planning a new repaint, reading a book. I have lots by my bedside. Planning to read as much of the good ones before age sets in. I remember my grandfather reading and re-reading and re-reading old cowboy books. I must have gotten it from him.  I digressed, sorry.


  1. Zane Gray? I have known so many who were avid readers of his. Digression is good, sometimes. I'm still in awe of your work. :)

  2. Thank you Aunt Lou! Wow! This is the first time I've heard of someone familiar with the Zane Gray books. The books still remain in my grandfather's home.
