Decided to figure out how many portraits I've completed over the past 30 years: over 100. I look at everyone of those as learning experiences, some came out great, some did not, but all were helpful to get me to where I am now. I am presently working on a double portrait, 3 individual Okinawan Eisa dancing children paintings, 1 single portrait and my Christmas card painting, with 5 others waiting to get finished. My goal now over the next 30 years, God the Father through Jesus willing, I will complete 700 - 1000 portraits. I can see that it can be done with the new acrylic classical process I am using now. Hope to have something posted in a couple of weeks(this process does still take time but much faster than the past processes I've used, other than just drawings.

Ok, here is the 1st of a new way I am painting my portraits now. The owner loved it and so do I. I praise God for teaching me a new way of doing things and I know I have a long way to go but I see a clear direction now, more than I've ever had before! I still do not know how to photograph my paintings so they come out actual colors. Everything in this photo is fine except the background has too much blue when it should be pinkish. I'll get better with it in time. Today I start teaching Good News Art class in my home! I'm so thankful to God for the opportunity!
