I was honored to be asked to paint a portrait of my husband's great grandparents for the cover of an upcoming Fiore "memories and recipes" book for a family reunion. The reference photo was taken in the early 1900s and it was challenging to guess colors while trying to capture a likeness. This was a fun project and I hope I was able to get a decent enough likeness. If they could see this, would they recognize themselves or wonder "who are these people?"

I've been in the mood to create fast, little paintings. I like to keep floral paintings "looser" than I do my other paintings, but I think I could've gone even less detailed with this one. This was a good exercise for me and I think I may do one more small one before moving on to a project that's going to take more time.

On Friday, I was honored and thrilled to receive the Ann James Award for Best Pastel Portrait/Figure Painting at the St. Augustine Art Association's annual juried Portrait and Figure Show for this painting "Striker"!
This same night I was also awarded an Honorable Mention for "Guard Tower" at the AGOP Creative Compulsions juried exhibition at Avondale Artworks in Avondale (Jacksonville). What a fantastic way to start the new year!!
