oil figure study by Denise Hopkins

“Gone Fishin” 6×6 oil on canvas $75 Buy Now SOLD

Back in April, when I first started this challenge, one of my facebook followers sent me this message with a photograph of two children fishing: you probably aren’t in need of any ideas, but, I thought this would make the sweetest painting.

I loved the photo but promptly began painting other things. I was ready for something new today. I’ve been doing the tried and true subjects for some time now and thought a nice little figure painting would be just what I need to start off this last fourth of my painting project.

I’m not so great with keeping up with commissioned pieces but I LOVE suggestions– photos people send me that I can reach for when I’m ready. No strings attached. No pressure to paint, no pressure on them to purchase.

If you’ve got something you think would make a nice painting, send it my way. You never know 🙂
