Red it is

Red it is! This will be the last portrait class session for me for a while, but I surely hope that I will be able to continue later in the year. what fun it has been!

Will probably not be posting very often in the near future, but will try to get back to it as soon as I can. As always, I'll still be enjoying and being inspired by your artwork even if I am away from the easel. Aloha!

Purple Hat

Some creative license here...the hat is actually a dark reddish pink, and may end up that way again, but today it wanted to be purple for a while. Reminds me of the Red Hat Society ladies who wear purple clothing and red hats, just reversed.

Sorry about the oddly cropped photo (all I have at this stage). It's certainly against the advice of Shane Michael Neal to post poor photographs of works in progress. And I don't disagree, but somehow, I don't mind letting you watch over my shoulder while I paint.We're all friends!

Tom Edgerton was gracious enough to share with me a preview of a major commission he is almost finished with. Frankly, it's magnificent. And it's really inspiring to me to see him taking some serious challenges and turning them into a wonderful piece of art. So a big thank you to Tom and to all the artists who share their inspirations and processes.

Let's see if I can capture a bit more of this model's sweet smile and the twinkle in her spirit next week. Aloha!
