It's Been a Month

What can I say - it's been a month since I last posted. I'm trying, but try as I might, two weeks between posts has been difficult to keep up. I have all kinds of excuses, but not gonna go there, just sorry!

A bonus though, I've almost done with The Players - Bassist. I wanted to finish him because next month, November 2nd, Saturday to be exact, I will be hanging some of my pieces at a church function put on by the Women's Ministry of my church and I wanted to finish him before that time. Here he is:

I thought the painting of the first in this series was a challenge, I found that this one was a challenge as well - I thought it was going to be easy. The standup bass was the real challenge. For one, the wood had such a variation of color and grain - that I finally went with what seemed right. I did really enjoy doing this piece. Just needs a few more tweaks. For sure it will not be exactly like the picture.

Talk about the picture, I will post it below so that you can compare. I tried to put them side-by-side but couldn't do it.

Thank you for visiting. I will post the finished painting shortly.
