Merry Christmas also to all of my blog readers and buyers, and thank you for watching my art journey this year! I hope your day has also included some snow.

progress on portrait drawings

Here is a detail from a 10" x 8" drawing I'm working on of Corin's sister Ona.

Ona loves horses, so she is holding a tiny colt, and sitting with some of her favorite dolls.

"Corin" in progress

"Corin", 10" x 8", (small work), graphite portrait in progress

Here is a study I've got going for a portrait effort. I've got errands to run today, so I'll get back to this later with a further post, but here is my friend Corin, in her room with some of her favorite dolls and treasures.

Additional note: took my signature off this original post-in-progress in case it was unclear, but it's a drawing still in progress, an informal scene, which will be including her favorite stuffed dog in front of her on a striped bedspread.

"Laguna Rose" Birthday art

"Laguna Rose", 5 3/4" x 4 1/4", graphite miniature drawing of my mother, Marcia, for her December 7th birthday

Spent part of Dec. 7 working on this drawing of my Mom, a moment captured when she was on vacation in Laguna Beach, just enjoying a rose arbor, in the summertime. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mom!
