“Lilacs and Pink Peonies” - 10x10”, oil on linen (sold). I painted this a couple of weeks ago but wanted to share a good photo of it. I was especially pleased with the composition and I’m so grateful that it already found a collector! Thank you to those of you who support loving artists. We couldn’t do it without you! And… if you’re an artist looking to learn more about painting florals (and peonies in particular), I’ve got a whole bunch of full length instructional videos on just that, on my course site. See comments below for more information on that.

photo dump from days 2 and 3. I so love sharing this experience each year with my twin sister, Emily Jean Olson! She is such an amazing human and always so encouraging to everyone she meets. And did I mention she’s a dynamite watercolor artist??
1) Emily and me in our gala dresses (she’s the one in that gorgeous white number, haha!)
2) Emily and I catching with before the friday morning demos (photo credit: )
3) Our big wonderful Denver group (missing a few 😢): diegoglazerart , , , , , , and
4) With one of my all-time favorite people, .artist who was there from South Africa!
5) Looking very tiny behind that podium as I gave my 20-minute presentation on Saturday morning about painting the mouth. .wolf.artist did an awesome demo on the ear, while talked about eyes (and showed some gorgeous closeups on his paintings as examples).
6) Painting in the booth
7) My Michigan workshop attendees from last summer… almost all of them came to the Portrait Society this year!
8- Afternoon book signing alongside and the indomitable (whose book signing line stretched as far as the eye could see, haha!)
9) With .wolf.artist , .susanlim , and Emily
Great times. Thank you, Portrait Society, for another outstanding event and for allowing me to be a part of it!

Another just finished for the . This one is 12x12”, oil on , and I had fun being a little looser with this one, even (gasp!) doing some scraping with the palette knife. I should do that more often, I think.

“Portrait of Blessing,” 8x8”, oil on panel. I started this portrait last May during my masterclass with . It was a demo from life, outdoors on the beautiful grounds of in . I enjoyed reliving the memories while I finished it in the studio. I don’t always finish my demos or portraits begun from life, but this one had solid structure and drawing, so I felt it was worth bringing to a more refined finish.

Here it is, guys, thanks for letting me tease you with those detail shots yesterday! “World of Wonder,” 34x30”, oil on linen. I started this painting early last spring and it was one of the few times where I had the composition and idea already worked out in my head before I started it. Not a single square inch of this piece was unintentional or painted without thought and care. It broke my heart to have to set it aside for many months while I worked on more pressing projects and dealt with family stuff, but I would put it back on the easel every once in a while and chip away at it. I’m thrilled to have brought it to its conclusion this past week. Wonder, by the way, is one of the core values at my daughter’s school, and something that I believe is absolutely essential to choosing art as a lifelong pursuit. Instructional video about this piece coming soon!

Close-ups 👀 of a painting I just finished! It took me almost a year. I’m really stoked about this one, as it pushed me to be more original and use my imagination rather than relying solely on reference photos or even real subjects! 😁 It depicts my daughter at around kindergarten age, reading to some animals and mythical creatures. She is currently obsessed with dragons, so she had a lot of opinions about this piece. 😆🐉 I’ll post the whole thing tomorrow. And… I actually filmed almost the entire painting process (!) so eventually, much of that footage and instruction for how I approach an ambitious studio piece like this will be on my learning site. I add new videos to the site each month. Check it out in the link in comments below.

Just finished: “Autumn Adornments,” 46x30”, oil on linen. Last October I took an inspiring day trip to the mountains with my dear friend , who modeled for this painting. When I get to fill a whole day, or a whole canvas, with beautiful things, I feel JOY. I love being an artist. This painting is headed to the in May. I’ll be sharing some process videos soon!

I really enjoyed painting this 20x24” commission of a treasured family cabin in Steamboat Springs. A landscape was a nice change of pace, and the husband’s smile when he got the painting for Christmas, says it all.
