I posted this painting awhile back. Boy, did I not know what was in front of me and I still have a month or more left to paint (every ribbon on the blouse gets embroidery stitching). This is a Sandro Botticelli forgery. Pearls on braid need reworking, feather, etc. Anyway, this is my first forgery and my first big painting. Every year our atelier has a forgery show, locally. Someone saw something and did an article in Amtrak magazine about our little small town shows and my fantastic teacher and an Architecture firm in NYC saw the article and asked for us to send 20 paintings back to NYC to a show at their firm. Mine was picked from 100 along with 10 others in addition to 7 Mona Lisas (from his first forgery show). All credit goes to our fantastic teacher.

FF - no, I'm not going. My art teacher and his partner are going. I'm so happy for him, for both of them (they also run the art store in town). We are so lucky to have this guy in our little town, but he's not about $ and he loves to teach. Honestly, I think what he does, how good he is, could not be found anywhere on the West Coast (I've looked!). This is his web site: Artroster.com A testament to the teacher and student....this was my former coworker's second painting (2nd forgery...less than 6 months in studio): Jacques-Louis David though his Rembrandt forgery (just incredible) was chosen (not on the web site). Not a forgery, but this student has been with atelier a few years...love this one! Tibetan Woman As my teacher says - he can teach a monkey to paint. I believe it.

Mike, thank you. Yes the hair was a major undertaking. When I stopped copying the pearls, literally, they got much easier. My art teacher thinks a lot of these Old Master's paintings have been butchered by well-intentioned restorers over the years

Beautiful! Absolutely awestruck that you were so together when recovering from serious surgery. Never heard of that kind of felting. (Not that I would call myself knowlegeable about any kind of felting). It looks wonderful. Did you make the felt and then applique it for the first piece or is it all one?

aww thanks FF....to needle felt you take cleaned and combed wool, ball it up, and stab it with a barbed needle till its the shape you want it.....the 3D animals have a pipe cleaner armature (you wrap it to start)...the greenman is my first "picture" 2D piece and for the back ground i used a mens gray wool vest that i "felted" (washed & dried HOT), then you can cut it into any shape without it fraying and i stabbed loose "roving" to make his face....there are some great tutorials on youtube and it really is satisfying because (dont tell anyone) it really is easy .....

i really wish i could paint like quinncat.....that is some amazing talent ....i would love to learn it all actually and i really appreciate everyones talent and i really wish i could paint..(Q, i must be worse than a monkey..lol )

Nan - I once had a desire to felt, but consumed by painting now. Even spent a huge $ amount on a famous felter's book (somewhere I operated under the illusion if I read art books I would become a better artist--really, for me, it is a good teacher and doing it over and over). People make Devon Rex kitties made to order to look like one's cat by felting...all over facebook. You are on your way with your besutiful mice!

But really, I cannot say this enough, with the right teacher, absolutely anyone can learn to oil paint. I went thru watercolor classes with several others that switched to oil, that could not produce what I would frame, including myself!!!, and they produce incredible oil paintings.

Check out the youtubes of George Ayers. He teaches a similar method to my teacher. It is very methodical and very forgiving. We use the gri method to get the drawing to the canvas. In the case of my forgery, I used a projector because of the intracicies of the hair, braids and pearls


i think this one shows the stages, past the initial drawing....there are more parts on this painting in youtube

Mike, sorry, I'm laughing and crying at the same time. Try months!! This is my second painting if you don't count my 2 little black and whites of cubes and a cones. It might take me weeks now, not months. This painting has taken me 7 months!!!! When I get to the "days" category, then I will feel better. I have one week left before I have to stop...let it dry, varnish, then crate off to NYC for the show. I still laugh at that.
