I just got back from Chicago and I got right back to work on some new Instagram Commissions. My trip to Chicago was amazing and I stayed with one of my best friends, Pino. While there, I got to see the Art Institute of Chicago which had some of the best paintings I've ever seen. I had never been to Chicago before and I had a really great time. Much love to Pino.
I've done some new Instagram commissions so make sure to check those out HERE. I'll also be working soon on some small oil paintings on linen panels that I made before my trip. It's good to be back home and working again.
I just put the second coat of vanish on the portrait of my girlfriend. I absolutely love the way the varnish breathes life back into the painting. I also put hardware on the antique frame for the painting. I'll put the painting in the frame tonight after the varnish dries and it'll be all set!
I also want to thank all of my followers on Instagram. I've been doing a bunch of commissioned portraits and it has really pushed me to become a better academic artist. I'm so happy that I get to share my drawings with so many people. Thank you for all the amazing support!
