In My Studio...

"Helpin' Pa" is ready for printing!
Usually, I transfer one of my original vintage tintypes or photographs onto canvas, then hand paint with Marshall's photo-oils, but I wanted to try something new & I love the results! Oh, the creative process is fun (I won't mention how many canvas are under my bed, that just didn't work out)!
Anyway, this time I had the image transferred onto 100% cotton rag paper, then hand colored, the texture is amazing! Now to the printers! You will see "Helpin' Pa" in the future, as a wonderful Giclee print on gallery wrap canvas!
These are moments artist live for!
