We're back south for a little while..nice and warm...almost too! Took a few, not many, pictures while up in NY, and painted a little, not much. But I did get a chance to portray our friends Dave & Jane on a stone slate substrate (above),something I wanted to do before leaving. Slate makes a fine painting ground, however long lasting it might be. Down below here is another little portrait painted for our wonderful mail lady. Her grand baby who visits from NM, has a soft spot for Anne's chickens! Here she is, cradling a baby chick in her hands! It's painted on a square of linen glued to masonite. Don't know who is cuter, the baby chick or Mylee!
