"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.)
