I'm off Again

I thought I would at least be able to post once a month and visit all the blogs, but of course, time has run away again and I'm off to Sweden tomorrow to visit my little family!

So, I think I will have some time on my hands when I'm there, and I am definitely going to try and visit everyone.

For my trip I've painted four portraits so that was also a bit of a rush.  At least I finished in enough time for them to dry.  Needless to say, all my other painting has taken a back seat and I'm only taking a sketch book to Sweden with me.

So, just to keep this blog alive, these are two portraits I did as a commission for a very lovely lady who comes to my fabric painting lessons.  It's nice when you get paid to do what you love, and I loved painting these.

Liz, my dear! Thanks for coming over to visit. Have a fabulous visit in Sweden. We've kicked back in our blogging but spent plenty of time being active regularly enough to develop such lovely relations. Love you, love your work. No worries on your posting.

These are great portraits! You captured the expressions so perfectly, and the colors in the skin are so full of life. I would love to be able to render a color portrait the way that you do!
