I painted for 9 hours yesterday! I am trying to emulate Richard Schmid's style. He chooses one area of focus and really works on detail and the rest of the painting is VERY loose. This is my high school friend's grand-daughter on her second birthday. Terry has photographed so many lovely things and given me permission to paint them that I wanted to paint Riley, her grand-daughter. I am not finished by a long-shot, but I'm happy with the shadows on her dress and her little arm.
I was born in Dallas, Texas quite a while ago. Went to school in Dallas and college in Denver,Colo. Now I live in Highland Park, a small suburb of Dallas.
I worked for DISD for 30 years and now I'm starting my second profession. Started this blog to showcase some of my paintings and hear from others. Especially those who like what they see!
