Pastel Portrait

This is a portrait of my voice teacher in NYC. Last year I joined the Great Neck Choral Society, and this is our conductor. She is a remarkable woman who, at 80 years of age, continues to teach, conduct, rehearse and travel with her amateur and professional vocal groups. This portrait will be a gift to her this weekend, honoring her and past conductors and members of GNCS in celebration of it's 50th year. It was the most challenging piece I've ever done, considering it's been nearly a year since I touched my pastels.

Damage Control

Recently, I bought a MacBook Pro so I can take my work with me when I travel, which so far has been nowhere; especially since I can videochat with family members now. Here is a pic of my Mom & sister and some old guy that wandered in during a recent "videovisit".

and thanks for stopping by!
