The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Charcoal of vintage girl

This is charcoal on Rives toned paper, and is based on a vintage photo from the early twenties. But it reminds me of my stepdaughter Nicole, who had the biggest eyes and curliest hair ever. Soon she will be bringing us another curly-headed, big-eyed baby girl. Can't wait!


And a close-up, just because I had so much fun with it.

Another Redhead

I am enamored with redheads lately.

I apologize for the bad photo. The canvas is only tacked lightly on the stretchers, and is catching glare no matter how I try.  Plus, we haven't had any sun in at least two years (ok, slight exaggeration there), so outside lighting hasn't been cooperative.
