Update And Current Works In Progress

**First just a note**:
 I do still have a couple of openings for commissions for pet portraits or other paintings to fill your Christmas list.  If you are interested in getting prices, etc., please email me soon as time is getting short, especially for oil paintings.  I won't be taking any more Christmas orders after December 1st/2015.

Now back to the regular blog post.

I don't have any finished works to post today; but I do have a fair amount of unfinished works in progress.

  A couple can't be revealed as they are commissions for Christmas gifts.
All I can say is that they,(2), are in oil.

Now, on to regular just doing what I like paintings.
This one is about 3/4 of the way finished.  It is on a 20 x 16 inch gallery wrapped canvas and is in oils.

This one is in the ugly stage, it is just roughly blocked in.
When we were in B.C. this summer, on one of our trips, we saw this mother bear and her cub.  They were walking across the road, when someone honked their car horn at them.  They ran across the road, jumped over the barrier and then stood up and looked back over the road as if to say, what is all the fuss about.  Their pose just struck me as being funny so I thought I would try and paint them.
It is on an 8 x 10 wooden panel and is in oils.

I haven't even finished blocking this one in yet.
This summer one of the places we visited was Prince Rupert, B.C..  We watched a few seals in the harbour just hanging around waiting for a free dinner.  They did get what they were waiting for eventually; but while they were waiting they swam around and allowed us to watch them.
This is on an 8 x 10 inch wooden panel and is in oils.

So that is what I am working on.  Some day I will finish them and of course, I have other things waiting that I would like to do. It seems like I always have more ideas than energy.
