Link 54th annual southwestern watercolor society show

Keiko Tanabe is our juror this year, and I am so pleased that she selected New Moon to be part of the show. View all the work at the Eisemann Center in Richardson, August 30 – September 30. The reception is September 24th from 4 – 6, and I would be happy to see you there.

Link women’s portraits

Juror Kelly E. Mara has invited two of my portraits to be included in her upcoming show, “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar”. I was unsure about submitting these, because both women are roaring quietly. But both of them are showing strength, in my opinion. I titled the watercolor on the left She Persisted and the oil on the right Sure in Silence. The show will hang for the month of August in the TVAA’s Plaza of the Americas gallery, 700 N. Pearl, Suite G-207. Reception is August 6 from 2-4.

Friday nights I almost always attend a figure drawing/painting session. Both of these portraits were done during one of those get togethers.

 

 

Link light reading

Sofia is a frequent model for my Friday night group so I have painted her several times. This session, she sat flipping through a magazine and I really responded to the pose. I like poses that are less “arty” and more like real life. Her sundress with the cute print fit right in with the feeling of fun, relaxed leisure time.
