Hello world! The Portrait Painting that Inspired Project

Portrait 1. Wax & Oil paint. 6″ x 6″ panel. Copyright Christine Montague

Help! I am a Canadian visual artist who paints figurative landscape & portraiture oil paintings. I create and show my work in my Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre, Glen Williams (a hamlet by Georgetown), Ontario.  In the fall of 2010 I created this 6″ x 6″  portrait painting at a cold wax workshop.  You can more about this experience here. At Christmas I painted a 6″ x 6″ portrait commission of a cat. As I love to paint large works, I was surprised at how much satisfaction I felt at creating this little work and at how much attention these small portraits received from studio visitors. As a result?  The 100 Little Portraits Project is born.
