Jilli and friend

The reference photo for this pastel called for me to paint it the minute I saw it. The mother of this beautiful child and I once worked together as audiologists, and have since been separated by time and distance. She always infused love and humor into my day, and for that I thank her with this gift. Thanks Robin 9" x 12" NFS

Makin' Tracks

This is the first rough sketch and underpainting for what will be a red trike. Some of the angles are off, and will be redrawn before I start on the next paint layer.

Horsin' 'Round a Bit

This was inspired by my friend Brenda M., who
wished me well when I was feeling sick yesterday.
I just remembered that she loves horses, so I put
on some Willie, Waylon, Hank, Dolly, Conway, Johnny,
and Charlie, and decided to give one a go!
My heroes have always been cowboys...
Thanks Brenda M.
