"Portrait of Jim" on display at Scottsdale Artists' School

I teach weekly classes at Scottsdale Artists' School and they often hang samples of teachers' work in the halls and lobby. The other day they put up my "Portrait of  Jim" (my brother). I really enjoyed painting him and I'm delighted to see him on the wall, so thank you, SAS!

I've got a wonderful family and it's my great good fortune to paint them - I'll get to everybody one of these days, I promise.

Family members show up in a lot of my artist friends' work. I wonder how they really feel about it. I imagine that it can't be easy, at least some of the time.

What about those crazy leaves, you ask?! More about this painting can be found in an earlier post here .
