Greetings on a Tues night! It has been a BUSY week already. Today is my grandsons b-day,  I can’t believe that he is 3 already. He is WONDERFUL and I just adore him. Anyway, enough of that – Here is the latest version of Niki’s portrait. So far the whole painting is done in oil sticks, but the final layers will be done with oil pastel.

For the landscape lovers among you, here is another oil stick painting of the Grand River in the SPRING. I really enjoy working on dark sanded pastel paper. It makes the light paint glow.

I plan on finishing both of these with oil pastels. Maybe this weekend! I also have to work on my snowy egret.

Have a good week
