Livin' the life

Having finished my 100 paintings project and the following show in December, and 2 HuHot murals after that, I've been takin' it easy in January (to say the least). These 2 paintings are the last that I did before the show and are the "Portraits of Mexico" that I promised (7 months ago). I like the way they hang better than how they look in print so I'm not sure this multiple painting technique will continue, we'll see.

The show went great, I've learned, hire everything: hanging, food, have friends sell for you, it makes for a calm artist.

Next? I have my eye on a portrait of a Salish Native American elder, but maybe with a little twist if I can work it out.
