Pastels on pastel paper. 10X15
2/28/12 I rescanned the image and it looks much more like the original now.

I am a self-taught artist, recently retired from my “pay the bills job”, who made a serious attempt at graphite drawing in 2006 at age 53. I have since done a few in color pencil.
I love drawing animals and children especially. Some of my work is available for sale as prints on this site. Commissions are welcome.
Thank you for visiting my page, and I would like to thank everybody who comments. I truly appreciate it.
