It has been a while since I've painted animals and even longer since I painted people but this was really fun.  

This was also a lot of fun.  I was commissioned to do a series of pastels of a woman's grandmother's farm near Bealeton, Va.  I drove up and did some sketching and took lots of photos before getting started.  Also fun- having lunch with this wonderful family and learning about the local farming history.
