1301 'Justin' NFS

8" x 10" oil on Masonite
This is the last painting until sometime in January , Hubby is flying in to Seattle at 5 this evening, saw him last in the summer and then it's back to Ireland beginning of January.
Washington is a lovely State with picturesque mountains, lakes, rivers and lush country side, I will miss it and my family. Looking forward to life in Dublin and enjoying a bit of city life.
Hope you all have a very Happy Christmas and may the New Year bring us all prosperity and new beginnings.

It's a very nice painting. Justin looks like a cool guy.
You mention hubby so I wonder if that is hubby's portrait. Please forgive me if I am wrong.
Happy Holidays to you and family :D

Hello Diane,
This is a beautiful portrait. You have a great composition with the strong diagonal lines in the background. Very nice.

Hi Millie,
No Justin is not my hubby, but my daughter's boyfriend I have immortalized!

Hi Angela,
Thanks for your positive feed back, he was standing in front of a steep, wooded incline, which I blurred so as not to overload the painting with too much detail.

This is so well painted...and what an interesting looking guy! Something tells me he's creative. Love the skin tones, particularly in the shadowed areas.

You have a safe trip back to Ireland and have a great holiday!

Hi Gwen,
Yes he is a multi talented creative guy (graphic designer), great cook too.
Thanks for your good wishes, have a great Christmas too.

Beautiful portrait with strong realistic quality. And such very fine strokes(giving it that distinctive softness), too!

Hi Diana! I've passed along the Sunshine Blogger award to you that I received from Lisa Riehl. I rarely take the time to do these things, but it has been quite a while since I told my fellow artists how much joy & inspiration they bring me. Congrats, you can visit my site to retrieve it!
