Lake Country Pastel Society Spring Juried Show



The show title is "A Touch of Red". No problem for me to put a touch in most of my paintings. In these two, the red is a little subtler in one than the other. The whole show is beautiful, and I was glad to have the opportunity to see it. It is at the Burnsville Performing Art Center through the end of February.

Pet Portrait-Cutest Kitten


The woman on the phone told me she had the cutest kitten in the world. Aren't they all too cute?When I went to her house to meet her now-grown cat, in preparation for a painting, I saw what she meant. The photo of the kitten showed a perfect handful of fluff, and beautiful eyes! I also really liked the little paw.

This portrait was completed in conte with pastel accents on a colored paper. The owners of this lovely cat are very happy with their newest piece of feline art.
