The Gold Bangle-web_01.25My newest piece is “The Gold Bangle”. This pastel portrait of a young woman is 14×18 pastel on paper done from my source photos. The model is Katrina Sherwood, who is also a muse for Cuong Nguyen. I had the pleasure of painting her at a workshop at Cuong’s studio. She modeled for several reference shots for me, so I have several future works in mind. Katrina got married recently and, unfortunately for artists in the bay area, she moved down to Los Angeles.
