Just read that Dunkin' Donuts is intending to reemerge in California!

And everyone knows that my old time fun-loving,
donut foe, Kelley MacDonald would gather
all of her ammo' at her local Dunkin' Donuts. Left me hitting
every pastry store between 3 states to retaliate.
Just couldn't keep up with her jelly-packed delights.

Now watch out Girlfriend!

HERE'S LOOKING AT ME

SUSAN

Very intimidating to paint oneself. After all, do you 
think we perceive ourselves as others? I look so serious!

Hmmmmm . . . . . 

Need to expand my knowledge for the students in my 
upcoming pastel portrait workshop at the San Diego Museum
 of Art and the Intermediate Drawing classes at UCSD Extension. 
So have been plugging away and revisiting with different
papers and styles of execution. 
Too easy to get cozy with a constant style. 

So let's experiment!

ZOE - A PASTEL PORTRAIT

ZOE 
pastel sketch

Christmas was a kick and so enjoyed the short visit 
with my family! Did a mad dash to Albuquerque with 
an extra stop on the way and on the return to visit friends.

During the drive, worked away on upcoming class 
projects. Amazing what one can accomplish! 
But knew I needed to get some figurative poses 
together, so corralled my daughter and 2 
granddaughters to work.

Above, Zoe, is a sample for my one-day pastel portrait 
workshop to be held at the San Diego Museum of Fine 
Art on Saturday,January 12th.  

Wondering what she's gazing at?
