This is a a pastel of Hope Manfredi, one of my YaYas. We're celebrating her birthday this evening and I did this painting of her (11 x 14) on black pastel paper. My first on black. What a challenge! I hope she likes it!
I'm a painter in San Antonio, Texas, and owner of a contemporary fine art gallery near the Riverwalk called Nueva Street Gallery. We're also creating a private school called Whistle Stop Corner for the instruction and enjoyment of the Arts. Stay tuned!
