 I am trying to draw people with more expression. The drawback of having models sit still, is they often look a bit glum, and their natural personality doesn't come through. I watch them when they are talking, and add a little smile or parted lips.

This woman is a hoot, but she sits very still (good), and tends to look very serious in her portrait.

Katy is a smiler 24/7, so no problems there!

Miranda too, has a lovely face in repose. I could draw her every day...


I am very happy to have several paintings accepted in the small works exhibition at 
Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.

each of these little guys are 4x4", oil on linen.

I gave another painting workshop last week. This time for an Autumn Landscape painting. A great group of enthusiastic painters!
