acrylic on hardboard
This is the first painting that I actually started and completed in one sitting. Usually I work on several paintings at one time over several days or a week. I started on the face, which didn't give me too many problems. The painting surprisingly didn't come to life until I painted in the glasses. I asked my kids to help me with the title. After several suggestions I pulled together the one you see here, "Sunshine on Hope". I hope it works.
