Peanut by JimmyDemello
Acrylic painting of one of my closest friends. She lives in Shanghai with another one of my closest friends - Sasha. Peanut got her name from John, an ESL teacher buddy of mine - I suppose because she is short and cute. 
Chinese Woman by JimmyDemello
Chinese Woman
I haven't painted anything in months (6) so painting from a book this chinese woman in acrylics in about two hours - Robert Henri style.
Well, I have so many hobbies I can't find time to do them all but I have been neglecting my drawing and painting so am committed to spending time drawing. I can copy other drawings to my satisfaction but I really need to work on real life drawings - in case I end up in the street busking. So will post new drawings now and then when I get an acceptable one drawn.
Rock on!

United States
I paint in acrylics mostly. I am a reluctant artist in that I paint to scratch an itch all the while knowing it will not lead to any great thing. That said, I am a Christian, which gives a different meaning to my artwork - somehow I believe the effort will be eternal.
Too serious huh?
