Latest watercolor, "Telling Stories"

Recently, I've been painting some wonderful folks living at a nearby retirement home. They will be the subject of a solo exhibition I'm doing in October that will include their portrait and tell their unique stories.

This is Thelma. She has a great laugh and hilari
ous tales from her childhood. She turns 94 next week.

"Telling Stories", watercolor, 13 x 16" unframed



These are some small drawings I gave Thelma in exchange for her time.

I can tell by your portrait that Thelma is so full of life. It's a beautiful painting.

i love the vibrant colours you have chosen in this portrait. it is also interesting how character is reflected in the choice of colours we use when making a portrait. this is a refreshing choice. r.

I love the idea of giving Thelma a series of sketches of her as compensation for doing her portrait. That seems more personal and something more valuable than monetary compensation.
