Finishing up the Hilton Head Gang

4 x 4"

You may have seen several 'mugs' of our Hilton Head Gang - the talented women who were in my workshop last fall - we're all doing paintings of each other and creating a book.  So I'm catching up and painting the remainder of those I've missed.  This is the most fun. I love doing these.

This is my version of Maria Hock aka The Enforcer - the very one who dreamed up this project.

I love it! I learn so much from your strokes...always so confident and bold.

Love this and know how much it means to Maria to have her mug finally done at the end of the long line! Gorgeous skin tones and such a wonderful intensity in the eyes! Perhaps you saved the best for last:):)

Just have to say again: LOVE IT!!!
And apart from being a great portrait (that's not a mug anymore!) and a perfect likeness, this is also such a wonderful study in color placement and mixing...

Maria ain't the last one, I've got more coming.

You guys need to join me again this fall - I'd love it.
