This little girls mom sat next to me at one of our family functions. She found me to be very interesting as she could not stop staring at me. I drew her of course and added the color later. I painted it on one of the 4 by 4 inch Stratmore artist tiles that I tend to keep with me for small sketches on site. I drew her dad the same day. He is the subject of the "Rhasta Rules" painting that I posted recently.
I will paint anything if it has interesting light. This is a plein air sketch of fuel storage tanks in Richmond, California. I was at the Richmond pier with Pam and turned around and saw the light on the tanks. I had been painting most of the morning and this was the last one of the outing.
