"Reflecting on Flight Times"

This young fifteen year old boy, the son of a painting buddy, posed for a life drawing session. I found out from his mother that about two weeks after our session, he shaved off all of his beautiful red hair!

Loved painting this from an old family photo. The boy on the right of the painting is my husband's uncle and will be celebrating his 90th birthday in September. He has had a wonderful life to date and has travelled the world for all of his life. More paintings of this fascinating man to come.

"Golden Girl"

18" x 24"
pastel on canson

It was a hot, sticky day when the granddaughter of a painting friend posed for this painting. At the end of a long morning, she had had enough "posing" and I was able to capture her in this more relaxed position. I think the use of pastels adds a wonderful quality to her already velvet skin.

(This painting won First Place in the Pastel/Graphite/Colored Pencil/Pen & Ink category in the Geneva Lake Art Association (GLAA) "The People's Choice" Exhibit. Thanks to all who voted for my painting.)
