Easy Rider

In my last post, I was threatening the use of a tricycle in my next portrait. I'm always trying to push the boundaries of what I'm doing and this the latest effort. We had no idea if our subject, Maya would cooperate for this or not. We posed her on the seat and gradually moved her paws on to the handle bars. She stayed for approximately 10 seconds at a time. We were all very surprised at how long she actually held the pose.

Next up, another 19th century style portrait, stay tuned.

Oh Henry!

Here we have Henry and this portrait is the most biblical looking that I've done so far. Using Architecture can be tricky because I don't want date this work too much. I'd rather leave the time period up to the viewer to determine for themselves.

The next animal portrait will involve a tricycle of all things, yikes!

It's a rainy day and a great time to check out my portraits, and book your session. Click on the link in my bio for commission info....
