Ages ago a sweet woman named Patty gave me oodles and oodles of vintage photos...such a generous gift for this people painting-loving artist. I have used them many times as inspiration for my paintings and lately I have been experimenting with these small 5 x 5 inch portraits.
Picking names can be a challenge at times because most of the photos do not have the people's names on them. For the portraits in this post I have been naming them after several young ballet dancers who were listed in a ballet program for Alice in Wonderland, which took place over the summer at a nearby park. I pick a name that seems to fit best with the face in the painting. I am running out of names, so it is probably time to attend another ballet.

I started a new job that is keeping me pretty busy these days. Not as much time to paint as I would like, but I do make time. So until next time!
