Free-for-All Friday Painting of the First Person is Jared





oil          approx 8" x 10"       Jared

Thanks to all who sent me photos. I would have liked to paint all of them. But, Jared was the first. Jared isn't this age but it is him. So... here it is. When you photograph a painting you see mistakes more quickly and the one I couldn't stand and went back and fixed is the un-level ears. I didn't take another photo yet. Again, this free-for-all Friday was fun for me. It is one I will do again too. Jared, hope you like the painting.

Great painting Shannon, I was surprised I was first since you had posted 10+ hours before I had sent in my photo. I was very lucky indeed.

Yeah I posted it (scheduled) at 12:01. I didn't want anyone to think I played favorites. I did a video of painting it. When I get the right software to download it then I'll post that. Just watched it. It's fun to see the painting take shape. Glad you like it.
