So fun seeing your museum paintings again. Love seeing how you recreate the artworks. "Big Sister" is my favorite so far. Love the body positions.

Great idea to use a Rothko in your painting.

LOVE this painting. But you know what my absolute favorite part is? How the figure on the right holds his weight on his left leg. You have such a wonderful sense of how bodies work! I feel like this is a 'still' and in the next frame they're going to move, shift their weight slightly, as they take in the painting.

Love the use of the Rothko and love your whole museum viewers concpt. I did a series of huge rothko homages a few year back and was surprised to get a call from his neice who, after all these year, is still trying to track down some of the 'missing/stolen' pieces from his career. I was complimented that she thought mine were similar enough to her uncle's that a closer examination was called for. After seeing them in person she was very nice and apreciated that they were not knock offs but rather homages to a true master. As artists I hope yu all get a kick out of this story.

Wow, you're terribly inspiring... I accidentally stumbled on your blog this evening, but I'm very glad I did! I feel far more normal running my little digital art blog now while obsessing over portrait painting. It was just something I started for fun and practice, but I find it amazing that you turned a hobby like that into something worthwhile and beneficial. ;)

By the way, I love your "painting a day" concept! How wonderful!
