Sam Roberts from Sam Roberts Band by Claudia Urbach

"Colliding Into Sam Roberts, 2011," Oil on Gallery Canvas, 16x20 inches

I had the opportunity to meet with Sam Roberts--an outstanding Canadian singer--in Pembroke a few weeks ago.  Here is a portrait of him after the concert; the show was a blast!!!  I can't wait to go to another show.  Here is his commentary on my work:

Sam Roberts Band hey Claudia! Thanks so much for the portrait. As strange as it is to see yourself on canvas, you made me feel at ease with it...I think you did a great job and it's a very expressive rendition. if I were ever the King of England, I would certainly come to you for my portrait. Would it be alright with you if we posted it somewhere? Til we meet again, stay well, Sam

A bit of a break

Thought I'd show a picture I took...yes, that's me during a recent trip to Huntsville.  Been busy, busy!  And taking lots of photos for future paintings!
