New Paintings

I have a couple of my old school style portraits done. I have painted them on wooden beveled plaques. I painted the wood black, then accented the bevel divots in brown, and flecked them in black. I then painted my characters onto a setting - style background and viola! I plan to varnish them and crackle the finish a bit to give it that old tin-type look, but being in a hotel I haven't found the opportunity to get to Lowe's and find a secret spot to apply the varnish coat. Once I put a clear coat on in Walnut or Honey... these puppies will look awesome. (They are a bit bright now, but will dull down just fine.)
