13 x 14, pastel on Wallis Museum

Dorothy has modeled for me for the last couple of years. Her mother was an artist (and so is her son) and she had the desire to help me with my art path, too. Now she is facing a move to California. Wow. I will miss her a lot. And regret not having her over to model more than I did.

I left this painting in the scribble-y stage. It's so easy to go too far. Here I have not gone far enough, but I can tell it's Dorothy.

I keep checking my new pastels to see if they are ready to use. Nope. Not yet. They feel cool, almost cold to the touch. They are still too wet to use. When they're warm, they'll be ready. Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
