Just completed a new pastel portrait. It is a 16 x 20 pastel portrait on paper. This is going to be a gift for two very special people – Chuck and Barbara – who live in Phoenix. They are two of the sweetest people I have ever met, so it was a real pleasure to do this portrait for them. This portrait was done from two different photos that I put together. See the examples.

Although I am still working on an oil painting portrait, while the paint layers dry I work in pastel. It’s difficult for me to work on more than one piece at a time, but I have to push myself to get more done in the time I have. I have some ideas that I really want to get done.
