Pastel portraits

Pastel , 20x16
One of the commissions that I have been working on.I have not been able to visit any of you lately as it was too hectic.I was racing against time as the client wanted 4 multiple portraits as Christmas gifts for his family members in one week!I am happy to say that the job was completed in time,and  I was so glad when he called this morning to say that he absolutely loved the portraits.
Now I am sitting here with my cup of tea and laptop, checking on what everyone has been up to! I hope everyone is now done with Christmas shopping and cakes are being baked in kitchens!Sending my good wishes to all my blogger friends....Merry Christmas!

    1. Yes that is what I wanted to do, Kathryn but one day down and I was itching to paint an elephant! Well I did paint two, eventually :) Looks like I am a restless soul...
