Richard Bledsoe “Fortunato” oil on canvas 20″ x 16″

Part of a series of literary alcoholics I’m working on-in this case from the Edgar Allan Poe story, “The Cask of Amontillado.”

This is the first oil painting I’ve completed since moving my studio into my house in December of 2012. I actually finished this painting a few weeks ago, I’m finding I’m working more frequently on my oil paintings since they are so easily accessible, and they are progressing quicker.

Michele Bledsoe “And Then I Do” acrylic on canvas 12″ x 9″

Michele has painted several portraits of us. This one is inspired by our theme poem, a favorite of Michele’s from childhood: “The Owl and the Pussycat” by Edward Lear.

Our wedding cake topper was a little ceramic figure of the animals in their beautiful pea green boat.
