Thank you all for your encouraging and empathetic words regarding Bailey. They are so appreciated. Nothing has changed thus far.
Meanwhile I have been giving much concentration to my art this past weekend. The concentration keeps my mind occupied.
This first piece is my copy of a beautiful painting called:
"The Young Shepherdess" by William -Adolphe Bouguereau (1885).
Below it I have posted the original. His girl is so much more beautiful than mine. I need much more practice doing faces.
It is 6 x 3 1/2 inches done in watercolors on watercolor paper.
This is Bouguereau's original. 2 1/2 x 6 inches. Done in oils.
This is my combined composition of two photographs I took at the Leo Carrillo Ranch a week or so ago. Done in watercolors and pen and ink, on water color paper. A little too heavy on the ink around the pots, I think My very fine ink pen (0.03) ran out of ink. I should have waited until I went to the art store for another one.
SEE YOU AT ABC WEDNESDAY
