So Confident!

                       One of our favorite Thurs models comes to our sessions overflowing with confidence. I feel much better knowing I am the one behind the easel and not in the hot seat of posing.  Always grateful to our models.

Saved by a Friend

           A friend came over to visit my studio and found these two small paintings in my reject pile.   She took them home framed them beautifully and simply.   Saved by my friend who saw  beauty where I was seeing judgement.
