Artist Eileen McCoy painting live at the Kansas City Club

 SOLD   
Dinner and a painting anyone?
This couple submitted a photo for an evening of dinner and a painting.
Artists paint their painting live while the Kansas City couple's wine and dine at the Kansas City club via the Buttonwood Art Space.
Called the KING AND Queen of Green 
because of their all green cleaning company in Kansas City. 
Clearly, they enjoy their work!

#194/"Tea Time"- Original Oil Painting from live model


"Tea Time" ©eileenmccoy.com-#285
    Painting weekly from a live model has been a delightful experience. I've successfully approached each one as "practice" ; a mind trick which relaxes me into spontaneity.
It seems the less restrictions one places upon the art, the better the results. 
  This portrait has been my favorite thus far. 
Enjoy! Eileen

Creative entrepreneurs often contact me to create something unique for their business. Steve Gaither, owner of Cars, Inc of Liberty, MO was one such fellow. 
He commissioned my services to create a caricature illustration of him (wearing his trademark Craigslist shirt) bursting through the hood of his rebuilt, classic 1969 VW Beetle affectionately named "Buttercup", which can been seen and followed around town through this website:

#191/ "DIGITAL GIRL with Pearls"-by©EILEENMCCOY.COM


"ALL THINGS DIGITAL" Caricature #4 ©eileenmccoy.com
    


The title of this painting is derived from one of the mom's answers to the question about the subject's interest. "All Things Digital" is a portrait of the vibrant "Kayt" , the second sibling here.  Unlike my detailed caricature drawings, the scale and composition demand a minimalistic surrounding.

This series features 50 faces painted on 10"X10" gallery wrapped canvases.
There is a 'fine line' between the caricatures and the humorous portraits.

"The Rain In Spain" ©eileenmccoy.com Caricature portrait on canvas
SOLD
Meet Allyson. Originally from Liberty, Missouri, she now lives and teaches in Spain; Thus the title, the fan and the dress (Her poise was also reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn and so the poetic reference). Paintings of her siblings will be featured in the next few days.

This client was delighted stating " I cannot believe how much these look like them!"
Though I haven't met 3/4 of these children, I felt like I knew them by the time these were completed. Watch for the siblings paintings in the next posts. 
This is part of the series "50 FACES SQUARED". 
Each portrait is painted on 10"X10" gallery wrapped canvases.
There is a 'fine line' between the caricatures in this series and the "humorous portraits".

  Enjoy, Eileen
