"100 Faces, No. 7"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite
sold

I'm here to tell you - whatever subject you pick to paint multiple times, do it. You'll expand on different approaches, methods, starts, finishes. It's a good thing no matter how long you've painted.

a note about the 100 Faces paintings - a collector of my work has committed to purchase the entire series.

Congratulations on having the entire collection sold, Karin, even before the brush hits the board on 92 of them. It's a testament to how much your artwork is admired.

Doing one hundred of anything is a great exercise for any artist. I'm a week away from completing my quest of doing one polar bear picture one hundred different ways. At the very least, it has certainly pushed my creativity to a new level.
