When I see this painting, I immediately think back when they were babies taking those first steps toward me...stumbling at first, but I was always there with open arms ready to catch them!!
Also, I wanted to share Colette Theriault's blog with all of you who are not familiar with her. She does mostly pastel portraits of pets that are so incredible and she's having a "pet portrait giveaway" that you don't want to miss out on.
Her link is http://petportraitsbycolette.blogspot.ca/2014/09/custom-pet-portrait-giveaway.html
You will love her work...

After I finished it, I really liked it because basically it's an outline with very little detail. I would like to paint a similar piece with my granddaughter playing her viola. I enjoyed painting this in oil because it doesn't have to be protected under glass like my pastels.

However, when I finished this pastel portrait I realized how much it doesn't look like her ! But since I like the portrait, I will show you before I throw it out. I usually know what I did wrong.. this time I can't figure it out!! I guess I'm a little frustrated. Maybe I'll pull it apart and fix it OR start over...hmmmm

beautiful Arizona. We decided to hike but it was pretty hot that day. We were enjoying all the pretty wildflowers....I believe it was 104 degrees.
(but it was a dry heat !!!! NOT....lol !)
We might have gone in about 1/2 mile or so when we decided to turn back...much too hot. When we arrived back to the start of the hike there was police cars and a news truck... why?
Someone had spotted a mountain lion and they were going to tell everyone to come back.. My hair stood up and needless to say we went back to the car....jogging this time !!!!

passion for watercolors is so evident in his work. He paints a lot of landscapes, Cityscapes but I have to admit his Seascapes are fantastic
and I enjoy seeing them SO much! In this pastel portrait, Josh was sketching and I loved the expression on this wonderful man doing what he loves so much!! If you get a chance, drop by his blog... you'll love his work!!

This is Don... Don is in my oil workshop that I go to on Wednesdays. After we work on our paintings, we sit and enjoy each other's paintings by doing a critique. Don had such a pensive expression on his face that was perfect for this pastel portrait.
