dogwood woman ~ colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors and gouache - 4" x 6"

thank you all for your kind words about these faces... the main thing that enabled me to paint while i was in virginia was


this little trailer... it was my home away from home and my art stuff stayed on the table; all i had to do was sit down, put the music on and paint. thank you rick and carole... (my brother-in-law and sister)

  3. What a great get-away place Lynne. Sometimes it is so much fun to not have a thing to do except "be". I felt that same kind of thing one day when I was walking in to a Home Depot. I noticed all the people, coming and going, and then thought that our lives seem to be on such a hamster wheel. When do we just "live" without having to work, to buy, to go back to work, to buy, etc.? Sounds like you had the right idea. Just sit down and paint while listening to music!

  12. Your faces are a favorite of mine. And in the case of dogwood women, so is the background you chose.
