With summer vacation nearly over, I'll be trying to regularly add to this blog again. Many portraits have been completed over the past year which I haven't yet shown. Here is a preliminary drawing in charcoal- a detail for a full-length oil.
Lilah and I met Mr. Wilcox at his green home a week or so ago. We'd never been in a home with sod on the roof and chimney coming out of the grass. He's an organic farmer as well as musician. Wish I'd videotaped the first song he sang which was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes!
crushes was on Laurence Olivier who starred in the Alfred Hitchcock movie, Rebecca. I first saw the movie when I was seven years old. It had such an affect on me that I could not stop thinking about it and had trouble falling asleep that night. The next morning I drew this picture of the cast of characters. In those days we didn't have hulu, dvds or even videos, if I had had a way to watch the movie again I might not have drawn pictures of it, trying to recapture the feeling the movie gave me.
My portraits are commissioned and are
mainly of children done in pencil,
charcoal, pastel and oils. Prices start at $300 for pencil and $1500 for oil. Email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org for further details in commissioning a portrait.
