Another popular subject for my 30 days: 30 paintings project (in addition to babies, in case you didn’t check that out) was couples. Several of these paintings nearly made me tear my hair out, but that’s a different story. I’ve put some time between me and these paintings, so no hard feelings…ahem.

[the only painting I did on a canvas (have I mentioned that I HATE painting on canvas?) But it was a 2 year anniversary gift…the cotton anniversary. I had to oblige.]

**And in case you were wondering, all these people paid extra to have two people in their paintings, since the deal was for a one subject painting **

    WOW!! These are gorgeous!!! And though I respect your different relationships with different materials, I think the canvas gives some really pretty and unique texture! Seeing you paint adults gives me a new insight on your talents too – most of the portraits that I have seen you do have been of babies and children and it is so fun to see the whole spectrum! You are incredible.
