Thank you for visiting my blog. I love to paint outdoors. In recent months I have joined a portrait painting group that meets weekly. I have fallen in love with portraits. So I will be blogging not only about plein air adventures and events, but also my new obsession with portraits.

Waitress: Anyone that will sit still long enough, I will shoot and paint later.
Travis and I went to an Asian restaurant this week and we had the prettiest little waitress. After we ate I asked her if I could snap a photo of her. She was all embarrassed, but sat down in my seat and just was happy as could be I asked for her picture. I told her I would paint her and bring it back to her. A good excuse to go eat there again! I don't have her features correct, but after I finish I hope it will look like her. The light in the cafe was so filtered I thought it would be a good photo. I wanted to drag an easel in and just paint her! What an addiction I have. (Thank you Andrea and Adam.) I never liked to draw people before I started that Thurs. evening session with them. Now, it's compulsive. Yicks.
