my Great Grandmother's painting- copy


Here is my rendition of my great grandmother painting. It was a fun thing to do, and it felt like I got to know her a little bit. There is some buckling going on - it's on a raw unstretched piece of canvas- I will try to mount it later. I hope it works.
I did a portrait commision of Nicole today- she is a friend of my Dad and Jan's- she shears sheep and has been living in a tent on their land for the winter. She is a love and her mom commisioned me to do a portrait of her.
I will post it when it is finished.
And these below are my morning figure studies from the porch.


Love these sheep! Several are pregnant. I am hoping for an easter lamb, but we will see!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, chickie! Are you going to EAT one of those lambs for Easter???? You can't. I claim all of them.
Spend your day in a dreamy way.... sketching, painting, singing, dancing.. xoxo

Happy Birthday, dearest and you know you ARE! Mwah!
I LOVE the photo of you painting on the porch with the ocean in the background and the interpretation of the painting is Rockin'. Love the colors and the light in it.
HAVE A GREAT DAY *********
