Reading the Posting


8 x 6 Oil on Archival Board

I've been doing a lot of commissions lately and felt the need to paint this man once again; something totally different.  I painted him a while ago and have always loved his "Charlie Chaplin" look...  Really a silhouette.   It's always good to change things up every now and then.  Now I go back to the commissions with a new passion.  I really love doing them :-)   I consider this little painting a warm up.  Actually, each painting is a warm up to what's next...Right?!


  1. You are right. But it is refreshing to paint something for yourself.
    You did a great job with Charlie C too.

  2. I love this guy, Shelley! I'm glad I found your blog. Beautiful work!
