Paintings are never finished

I thought I was al most finished with the portrait of Bob. I didn’t like the background, his tail, the length of his body, his eyes. So I have made adjustments before adding last minute details. Critiques are welcomed!

Grandchildren take art class

image imageThe boys had a fun learning experience @ Michaels arts & crafts store.  For a small fee of $15 each the boys enjoyed a 2 hour acrylic art class.  The paints were not included & were a little expensive. Grumbacher acrylics were on the supply list along with brushes & palette knife.  They shared the paints to cut back on expenses but now have supplies needed if they want to take another class.  They did a great job!

imageI’m my worst critic! But I do think It looks pretty good for a baby oil painter like myself.
