"You Gonna Share That Gelato?"
12 x 16
Oil on Raymar Panel
This is, of course, from my recent trip to Switzerland/Italy/Germany. We were in Italy here...where else would you get gelato! This dog desperately wanted some of the delicious treat but waited patiently until he was allowed to lick the bowl. I love the look between the two...an anxious understanding.
The setting was one of the cobblestone stairways...of which there are many..in Italy. They all look so quaint and foreign to me that I could only think of movie sets and how wonderful it would be to film real life in Italy!
Yesterday my son agreed to sit for me so I could paint from life. Here is his Steampunk look. He owns the top hat and glasses. I imagine I will be doing more of these as he has agreed to sit again...and his wife has also relented and will sit for me also. It is such a good exercise. This one was done in three 20 minute sessions...then I called it done. When I do these I am trying to get as reasonable likeness as I can as quickly as I can and not be too knit-picky about it. I am pretty pleased but will do better next time!
Well, arrivederci!!! Which means, of course..."till we meet again"!
