I am a full time artist and healing from cancer. God's gift of art helps heal me. Most of the art you see is for sale and should have prices except the sketchbook pieces, if not email me. We have provided for payment by button and please read notes in red for buyers. God bless.
She was great for watercolor with that face. She caught me drawing her but then I got this smile of sorts so I continued. She knew what I was doing. I finished this in the studio but gave her two pages in my little moleskine.
This was in 1976..... it was used for training artists in portraiture as it had been use by mentor to me. I remember when I first painted this and was so proud.....funny looking at it now. Memories.
