Going to the next level

I am pleased to have participated in a mentoring program with master pastelist, Albert Handell. This was an opportunity to take my painting skills to the next level. I painted outside, every day, morning and afternoon, then attended class in the evenings. Exhausting but thrilling, at the same time! 

An interested observer purchased one of the paintings I did, right off my easel. She is one of my newest fans, and I love having her as a collector.

Portrait Workshop

July of 2007 I took a long anticipated portrait painting class with renowned pastel artist, Daniel Green. In addition to painting and learning, I made some new friends. I recently received this photo from one of those friends of myself in class with one of the portraits I painted. Randy, the model, has an impressive collection of outfits to wear while posing, and I especially enjoyed painting his head wear. Receiving the photo was a reminder of how much I enjoy painting from life.
