I have spent the last few days finishing that portrait of Caplin Rous, the CAPYBARA. (See post below) His site can be found here: Capybara Madness. This was also my first "human" portrait so I took more pictures to document the development of her face. I think it is a pretty cool progression. I just finished the painting, and the wet paint distorts the final photo, but I was too excited not to put it up. right. now. However, a better image will be coming soon!

Thank you Caplin's family and friends for all your enthusiam and kind words. I should have know Caplin would only associate with such nice people. :D
