AVA

Original.  This is a most adorable baby, well, 2 year old, that I have painted !  Nice story behind the oil painting.  Proud father-to-be knocked on my studio door and wanted a drawing from the Ultrasound photos. I looked at the set of 4 and said, which one ? Not missing a beat, he said, "all four !!"

Well, Stefanie and Josh had their beautiful baby a few months later.  I've done a few more pencil sketches, marking special occasions.  When I saw this innocent moment posted on Instagram, I knew it was time for an oil portrait.

ROYAL BLUE

"Royal Blue"
Original
oil on masonite
16" x 12"
$695
©Nancy Tokos 2018

Original.  Few years back, a formal portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge was created for the National Portrait Gallery in London.  When I was in London, I made a point of going to see it.  I am familiar only with the media's photographic interpretation of Catherine: lovely smile, energetic and modern.  The National Portrait Gallery portrait was very large and dark and the Duchess was very somber.  I decided to paint the Duchess myself for my portfolio.

This is an original work of art by American Impressionist and California resident, Nancy Tokos.  Oil on masonite.  Safely packaged and shipped 1-5 days following the PayPal transaction.  You can also save on shipping and take delivery from my bricks and mortar location in San Diego.  Colors and values may vary slightly between the actual oil painting and the image on your computer.

SONNY & CHER

"Sonny & Cher"
Original
Oil on canvas
10" x 8"
Price $225
©Nancy Tokos 2018

Original.  Summer has arrived in San Diego, California.  Summer has been in Arizona since last November (for that matter, Arizona has just the one season). For some reason, when San Diego temperatures hit anything higher than 70, the local news teams declare "heat wave."  Beaches expect 90* and inland are braced for 100*.

My advise: buy a chair and stick your feet in the ocean.
