Sonia - 1983

pastel on canson (1983)
Another reminder of the art I was making in 1983. Sonia and I reconnected during my last visit to Santa Cruz and I look forward to seeing her this coming week during my next visit to California.

Andy in Santa Cruz - 1983

pastel on canson
I loved coming across this photo today. This is a pastel portrait I did years ago (1983 - you do the math) of Mezzo's friend Andy. What I remember about Andy is that he was mighty cute, really smart and funny.

This painting started a year ago when my sister and I went to the McNay Art Museum for her birthday. We took lots of reference pictures and had a great time. This waterlily called to me.
