Conte Crayon on Paper
This is a portrait of Linda who is one of the regular artists in our Monday morning drawing class. The volunteer model didn't show up, so Linda volunteered. The artists who were using color loved her lovely skin colors. She is definitely a beautiful woman. We all loved drawing her classic features. The portrait is not for sale since we give our work to the model.

Pasture on Pear Orchard Road

8"x 10"

Oil on Canvas Panel


The pasture grasses are lovely this year. They contrast with the Live Oaks and Cedars. There are many roads in our area that lead you off into beautiful pasture lands with goats, cattle, and longhorn cattle. Granbury has such a variety of landscape areas to choose for painting.

12"x 9"
Pastel on Paper
On Monday mornings a group of artist gathers to do portraits. We ask our friends and even strangers to model for us. Our one requirement is that they can breathe. They are volunteer models, but then we give them our drawings. So far they have all been very pleased. This drawing is of Frog who runs the restaurant "Pam II" in Acton, Texas. He is such an interesting person and was an outstanding model.
