Fairy Model

An artist friend of mine, Annette Palmer has a teenage daughter named Faith.  She is the ultimate fairy model.    This is #3, she just charms me.

Some Recent Drawings

After getting back from Midland, I have been going to model sessions, I miss them so when I don't get the opportunity.  I ordered a small palatte of Charles Reid watercolors (his choices).  Was amazed at how bright they were.  Think I will not be the next Charles Reid.  But finishing them could be fun.

Good day

 This elf is done..too late to take to Midland.  Shipped off my supplies already.

It was a fun day at the Watercolor Society today, Josianne, one of my very favorite models was at the watercolor session today.  She is so much fun to draw and paint.  I got some great photos to do some work from.  I have way more to do than I do time to do it.  I leave for Midland, Texas to do a workshop and dont' get nack until the 14th.  Here's hoping it is a good time.

Just had to do this one

This is one of those paintings that would not leave me alone until I did it.  It needs some tweaking but almost finished.  

Sunday, August 25, 2013



 And am almost finished, what a long road.  These are 20" x 30"
 on canvas.  They will hang as a group at The Holland Street Gallery the end of September.  Can't decide what combination looks best.

am almost finished with the fan dancers

I look forward to doing this cute little elf when done with them.
I get really bored with a project if it takes too long.  Sign of a lazy artist.

Am aware that you needed to see the model


You would never believe these quick sketches that I did last week.  That is why I put a picture of the model under them!  What fun we had with this model.  Hopefully she comes back soon.    If I ever get my final fan dancer done, I have big plans for some others. 



I know that you needed to see the model to believe ,u
