Misha - Another Arizona model

I recently finished this piece that I started at the workshop in Arizona (see below).  Misha modeled for us for about 3 hours.  She was a very pretty young girl with a terrific voice.  She and I had to do an accapella solo for the class.  I'm afraid hers was MUCH better than my quick verse.  She looks a little solemn in this pose but the lighting on her strawberry blond hair with the blue was very nice.  I hope I did her justice.  I'm currently working on a family portrait of a very dear friend who insisted I could do a family of 10.  It has been quite a challenge although it is a beautiful family.  Hopefully it won't be too long until I can post that one.
More later!

Wishing you Joy!

Finally Finished "Fil"

Such a joy to paint "Fil" our Hopi Indian model at my Arizona workshop (see that story below).  I've finally finished him but the photo doesn't do it justice.  Oh well, until I can get a better camera and find out more about lighting it will have to do!  On to the next project!
Stay tuned! Tomorrow night is the "Dragonfly Ball" at the Burningtree Country Club in Decatur with my band, "The Valley Cats".  Life is good!
