slowly, I put my camera away...then decided not to move since we certainly couldn't out run this guy. My husband, John, said he looked like he was coming down the rock toward the water, so I waited hoping he was right. Slowly but surely he walked in front of us to the water. I stayed perfectly still not looking at him, and at that moment, I decided "never" to hike by ourselves. I think hiking with a group of about 100 people would be perfect !!

I used my Unison pastels for the bows and trim on the dress. Unison pastels are very soft and the colors are so intense. I went to Blick's this week and as you all know, going there is like going to a candy store..!!! I hope you like this portrait.... I enjoyed painting her.

I think I was so excited that I took my sewing tools out the next day and started to cut up her gown. Since she had a girl, she packed away the boy's Christening outfit so that someday her girls would have it for their children. It turned out to be such a very special day for me ! This painting was done in pastels.
