It's bunny time again! I didn't have my camera in the studio today so I have no progress shots, but below is the reference photo and how I cropped and color adjusted it...

10% of the sale of this painting will be donated to the House Rabbit Society.

"Emma" (pastel, 24x18 inches)  sold

A portrait commission from last Christmas. I've painted all of this client's grandchildren so far, some of them three times! He's set a tradition to have them each done every five years. Lovely client! (and lovely granddaughter!)

Here are some progress shots:

Thanks for watching! Please share!

"Stevie"  (pastel, 10x10 inches) click here to bid or buy

Finally, my finished demo from the little workshop with the Pastel Society of the Southwest earlier this month. I've painted this stylish gal a couple times before; she's a favorite of my reference shots!

Speaking of workshops, I still have just a couple of spaces left (I think!) in each of my spring workshops coming up soon! Durango, CO, March 31 - Apr 2, and Lee's Summit, MO (near Kansas City) Apr 14-16. Visit my workshop page for registration info on each!

Donna Keyola

"Donna Keyola"  (pastel, 12x6 inches)  click here to bid or buy

I had a good couple of one-day workshops this weekend. This was today's demo for the workshop with the Texas Pastel Society in San Antonio. (Yesterday's demo still needs a few tweaks and I'll be posting later in the week.)

Tomorrow I get to load a U-Haul van with my portrait sketching booth and set up at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, which runs Feb 9-26. (Find us in Booth 400 in the Freeman Coliseum, doing portraits and caricatures!)

A short break from the bunnies with a big bull. This was a little warmup before my two single-day workshops this weekend. Saturday in Houston for the PSST, and Sunday in San Antonio for the TxPS.
