One year, we went to have a glass of wine at one of the many open bar/restaurants on the island. There were a number of paintings on the walls, which I remarked about to the servers. I told them that I was an artist and they both asked me if I would paint their portraits. They gave me their addresses and phone numbers. I really intended to get the portraits done and sent within the year. NOT! However, I have recently tried delving in colored pencil and have discovered that this is my medium for portraits. I seem to have a certain medium for certain themes. Acrylic and oil for landscapes. Watercolor for still life.
At any rate, after numerous attempts using colored pencil for landscapes, I decided to dig out the photo of the lovely young woman by the name of Jackie.........and see if I could do better with a portrait. So here it is. Jackie, if you are out there..........here's to you Pretty Lady!
