Run Ragged..


I thought I would have more time after the Awards Luncheon was over but I was wrong. In the past two weeks, I had to finish two newsletters. One was small- only twelve pages, but the other was 42 pages. Once it is approved, I will post the link to ISSUU where I post these issues.

I had not drawn/painted in three weeks and was determined to do something today. I had no idea what to try, and while facial likenesses are not my strong suit, I had to give this a shot. I posted it twice on FB- the second time after I changed the suit color. I made more changes after that too (this is a bit different), but I think I need to just leave it alone before I screw it up completely!
I'm having a lazy day and I needed one! So much to do... and I don't have the energy. Well, tomorrow is another day.
If I keep working in pastels I will have to change the name of my page from "Brush Strokes" to "Pastel Putters."

Looks more like it'd be his brother if he had one, but that's okay, it's a really nice portrait.

Maybe this will be used to defame him as the brother he refuses to acknowledge?

I am guessing the President.

Likenesses are not my strength- only a little easier with paint.

I like it. Who was your model?

That is why I dared not put a name to this- in case it did not look like him! Guess!
