Painted Violin Project

It has been a while since I last posted on this blog so I thought I would update with a project I completed recently. I was fortunate to have been selected along with 9 other artists for the Fresno Youth Orchestra Painted Violin Project 2013.

This was such an enjoyable project and also for a very worthy cause. The Violins were auctioned off in May and all proceeds benefit the youth Orchestra.

My Violin was painted with oil and also real gold leaf applied.

I have included within this blog some photos of the process.

This was a project completed for an online artists forum I belong to. All artists exchanged names and painted each other and sent as a gift. This is a portrait of Erik



Portrait of a Lady

I came across this painting while searching for reference material. I thought she was beautiful and I love the art. The source for this painting is from this website- Web Gallery of Art

This wonderful Web Gallery of Art is a virtual museum and searchable database which I sometimes spend hours at.
The artists info:
