Rory

In between commissions, I’ve spent the past two weeks working on this pastel of my son Rory.

Rory is not one for posing for photos or flashing a giant smile on request, so rather than a portrait of him smiling at the viewer I decided to capture him as he really is, studying a bird identification guide while stuffing himself with an Oreo cookie!  27 more words

Inking is finished

The inking is finished, including for the house.  She got back with me concerning which of the two back porches was correct.  As I suspected, it was the screened in version versus just a railing, but I did want to put in the right one.   191 more words

I just met a woman who is also a painter, and she lives only about a mile away.  We have gone painting a couple of times, and having a painting buddy is very motivating to get me painting more regularly. 328 more words

"Basin at Seiwa En"

I love this peaceful, serene fountain at the entrance to the Seiwa En garden in the Missouri Botanical Garden here in St Louis.  In late summer, my husband and I spent a day here while I painted this in plein air in soft pastels.   86 more words
