Light My Fire, Baby!

16 x 16 oil on mylar

A neighbor challenged me to paint a monkey smoking a cigar so I attempted.  This is not the sort of thing I normally do, but I thought....why not?  Anyway, I have some more work to do on his hairy body and other small details but basically I've done about all I set out to do.

The Posse (Dixie National Style)

12 x 12 oil on mylar

Calling it quits on this one - I'm mad at myself for painting so close to the top edge so there is no room to mount, frame, etc.  I have a bad habit of doing that.  I forgot and didn't allow a margin for taping mylar so I used push pins to hold to board and then forgot to allow space around edges - oh well!  I like the looseness of it though!
