    Without reservation I can say I enjoy the creation of every piece I create.  Some are especially memorable and flow from hand to paper in an unexplainable way.  This is one of those pieces.  The subject is the mother of the client's wife.  The photo I worked from was taken many years ago; the mother passed away this year.  I didn't plan to do this in color, I didn't start the piece in color, it just all fell in place as I was laying it out.  I can only guess she was a colorful women with a rich life.  I mark this as one of my first, real color portraits.  The piece was finished in soft pastel and graphite.  I am excited to continue exploration of this new medium.
