God Bless America & Happy Birthday Tom

Tom wanted an eagle in his office to go with the elephant I painted. He considers himself an elephant hunter in his business, and he is also very patriotic.
This was his 58 birthday present.

My First Portrait Lesson

This is Stephanie, my beautiful daughter in law, in Hawaii during her wedding ceremony.

I had a wonderful learning experience with my new pastel portrait artist, Susan Carlin, at her new gallery/studio in La Villita. With her looking over my shoulder and giving guidance, I am happy with the way this turned out. Stephanie is really prettier than this, but I'm afraid to mess with it too much! I feel much more confident with pets, animals, and fur instead of skin tones. But I'm working on it!

This is very exciting learning new things and gaining confidence!
