I thought I would post every week or so after our Spain and Portugal trip but 2016 just flew by and I must confess I didn’t accomplish what I had anticipated. It was a year with lots of family and health stuff, so art making and travel was put on the back burner for a while.
I did manage to complete one project that was long overdue. Eighteen years ago I took some photos of my sister-in-law and nephew with the intention of painting a portrait. There is quite a long story behind the creation of this portrait, this one is actually version #2, but I won’t get into that today.
Finally, I was able to deliver this portrait much to the surprise and delight of my sister-in-law and her family. It is a pastel painting, 19″x 25″.
Such a beautiful painting!!! You are so talented, Trudy! xxoo
Thank you, having a beautiful subject sure helps.
Trudy, “Only an artist can interpret the meaning of life”. Beautiful work. Thank you for sharing. How is the TX trip going? Heard about an explosion

Thank you Gayle. The trip is going just fine and didn’t hear anything at all about any explosion.
Beautiful, Trudy. Are these your home made pastels?
Thanks Monica. No, I didn’t use them for this painting. Actually haven’t used those ones much yet. Guess I better get at it!
I hope, you are feeling better and your health has improved again. Trudy, you are a great artist.
