"Abraham Lincoln"

5 x 7"
oil on masonite
sold


After a long day of painting, I guess I had a little juice left in me - so I joined in on the current Daily Paintworks challenge to paint Abraham Lincoln, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I know you haven't seen much current work - I'm painting new pieces for an upcoming solo show. And for a little while, it's under wraps. Drives me nuts.

I painted him, too. He was kind of irresistable! I love your background color.

Karin,
Wonderful job on Abe- love the cragginess that you captured so well. I bet he felt tall at 5 X 7 compared to all the 4 X 4's!
Take care and hope things are getting a bit better.

So glad you did this challenge. Great portrayal. Favorite spot....the blob of white on his shirt collar. Made me smile.
Can't wait to see your new works.

This is really amazing. I did this challenge also and found it really difficult, I really needed to simplify (which is what I am working on anyway...).

Is your work seriously in inches??? Very tiny detailed work and very painterly.
