first portrait. Ah, well, she's a beauty regardless of what I'd do differently next time.
Normally, I abandon my brushes and pencils each spring and pick them up again only as summer draws to a close. But not this year. Oh, I'll still have my garden and my summer adventures, but this year I'll not leave my pictures behind. I solemnly vow it to the internet at large.
My first seeds are planted, my peach tree is in bloom, the weeds have already began their yearly march across my flower beds, my bicycle is tuned and ready to gallivant throughout the summer city. So, this week I'm beginning a new happy habit: Summer Sketches. Look for the first set next week!
This original painting is now in my shop, waiting for a happy new home!
