8"x10", colored pencil on Crescent Illustration Board

This beautiful three-year-old, Haidyn, is one of my six great grandchildren.  The reference photo was taken while she was visiting and modeling my hat.  This was fun to paint as I found myself smiling back at her as I worked.

About Sam

An extremely active retirement community in Central Florida, is where I hang my hat and do my artwork.  I am the mother of two, grandmother of two and great-grandmother of seven.  I am a member of the Villages Art League (www.TheVillagesArtLeague.org) and the Visual Arts Association (www.visualartsassociation.com) which provides many opportunities to show and sell artwork as well as classes and workshops by prominent national artists.  I am also a member of the Oil Pastel Society  (www.oilpastelsociety.com). Experimentation is my medium.  I've moved from oils to soft pastels to watercolor to acrylics to colored pencils to oil pastels.  Lately, I have been mixing media.
