This will be my last painting for 2015! It's so hard to believe that 2016 is around the corner...
such a busy time in the year for all of us. I'm working on a pastel portrait for January! Until then,
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR to all of my friends here on blog land!

I haven't been painting for a few weeks because I had an annoying floater in my eye that looked like a spider in front of my vision! First my hand now my eye !!?? It seemed to have gone away and I'm hoping it doesn't come back again... although I understand that it never really goes away!!!

But more important!!! www.wallpart.com is stealing our work off the internet and selling them as posters! This really needs to go viral so we can stop them. I know, because I found my work there when I typed my name.
Some of the Artists in the Pastel Society believe that they want you to order a poster of your work. Once you put the order through, they can get into your computer. Very scary people out there. So sign the petition....I already did!
The link is
and feel free to share the link with other artists.... I will be visiting all of you soon!! I look forward to catching up!!

I will be taking a break from painting, and blogging for a month or so because I have a bad case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which is so incredibly painful and it gets worse when I type or even paint! It's very upsetting because we don't realize how much we use our hands until the moment we "can't". Wearing a brace helps a little bit...any input is appreciated. I'm typing with my left hand right now..(not easy) Thank you so much for your comments.
I'll be back soon.

I don't know how you all paint with oils! lol...I had so many problems mixing colors. I decided to paint a self-portrait of one of my favorite Artist - Rembrandt. As you know, he painted so many self-portraits and since I love his style I used this as a study for my next oil portrait. The title is "Self portrait with a Gorget". I was curious to know what a Gorget was....it's the Armor that protects the throat and shoulders. I learn something every day!

Unfortunately I don't remember exactly where but I do remember how beautiful it was.. The perfect place to be when you wanted to sit and enjoy God's Country.. listening to the sounds of the birds and waterfalls. I loved seeing the moss all over the rocks. Wonderful colors everywhere you look. Right now I'm working on a portrait but I thought I would post this painting. Since I wanted to achieve texture on the rocks, I painted this on sanded paper. I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday.
