Jen, this is a delightful (WIP) painting of the soccer boys. Reminds me of Norman Rockwell.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Sarah - nice rendering of the musk ox! I've only seen these in the zoo.
Thank you all for the good words on my sweaty little boys! Claudia I am honoured you like it. Perhaps a good reproduction would travel best. I have a friend who gets them done for her paintings and they look great. Reproduction is not the word I am looking for but I can't think what the correct word is tonight! My art friends have all fallen in love with them and were quite vocal about them staying at the studio. we will see.
Sarah great work on the cow (Musk ox) I wouldn't like to get too close to those horns!
Jen C & C's always welcome
Here is where I am today. Number 25 gave me a hard time! Still got work to do on them all and those balls and all the finger prints on the grass!
Sarah, you musk ox is great. I agree with Charlie, it seems peaceful. He appears to be looking over his domain while keeping an eye on things. I like the shadow in the foreground of the painting.
Jen, I can see why your art group is in love with these boys. They are turning out very good.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Oh, Jen, what a fantastic painting of the soccer boys. It's an adorable image to begin with and you are doing a bang up job on them. Their clothes look wonderful and I love their hair. This is turning out to be a masterpiece.
I'm doing well. It took a long while to recover from all the surgeries but I have. Right now I'm recovering from cataract surgery but that's a good thing. Hubby with have a joint replaced on his hand on Friday and then his family will be coming next week for their annual family reunion. Keeping busy.
Sam/Sammy C & C Welcome

Thanks Jen, Nealey, Bonnie and Charlie....I just called him Buffalo Bill!
Nice surprise to see Sam commenting.
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
Jen as everyone has said your painting of the soccer boys is outstanding.
Sarah nice w/c of the ox. Your field and sky is also well done.
Sam nice to hear from you
C&Cs always welcome
Thanks Karen, much appreciated
Karen, Charlie and Bonnie thank you. I had such a great reference to go by I couldn't go wrong!
Sammy, thank you! It is great to see you here again! I am glad you are feeling more yourself again and hope the cataract surgery went well. Good luck and good wishes to your husband with his surgery too. I hope to see more of you soon as we miss you.
Okay trying again to post this.
I am calling this done unless someone sees something. The balls were tricky but it is about the boys rather than the balls! Love this reference thanks Claudia. working on Buttercup now. Animals and me don't always work but we will see.
All those in way of the current round of storms stay safe.
Jen yes I'd call it done. You should be very proud of this. Great job.
Jen, VERY well done!!! I especially like the body actions and the balls look great. We had 1.5" of rain last night, need more.
