I just completed a new pastel portrait painting of this stoic, American Indian.
This interesting portrait was painted from a historical, black and white photo, so I had to imagine all the colors here. His face seemed so interesting and conveyed a quiet strength, that I hoped to capture it, if I could, with my pastels.
I hope I did him justice and that you like what I have done here. Enjoy!
Hello all. Of course I know it has been awhile, but I am still alive! I am trying so many different painting projects right now, and although I seem to be all over the place, I somehow make it work. I have so many ideas in my head all the time. I wish that I could get all of these on paper NOW! But alas, I cannot. Unfortunately.
Anyhow, this is a painting I created awhile back, but I fixed it up with more color and softened it just a bit and put it on my Etsy Shop for Christmas. I just love angels, and since Christmas is coming up fast, I thought this would be the perfect painting that could symbolize the miracle of Christmas.It seems as though this little angel is about to give this little baby an angelic kiss. A painting of pure love and devotion. I also think it could be used in a nursery as a guardian angel print.
I hope you like this one and hope to have more ideas up here soon. Until next time! Cheryl
Here is a duet done by two great artists, Yo Yo Ma and Alison Krauss. The lovely music along with the sound of the deep sound of the cello and Alison’s angelic voice make for a beautiful piece here. I did post a video with this piece early on when I first started this blog, and I feel I just have to post it again. If you feel stressed out lately, just sit back and enjoy this one. It seems to bring everything back in perspective. Nice video, too. Enjoy! 🙂
