PORTRAIT GALLERY

This is a representation of my portrait work.   It is not exhaustive and is not entirely chronological.  I do both pastel and oil.

 Pastel, 28×24, “Auntie Vi”.  This is a beloved Aunt of a friend of mine.  She agreed to sit for this portrait for me just for fun.  She had such sparkle and joy I knew she would be a wonderful model.  ( I have attached the reference picture – different sweater!)  Sadly, a few years after I did this portrait, she passed away.  I gave the portrait to her family but did not take a picture of the portrait unframed before doing so.  Here it is at a show of mine just after it was completed.
