Ariel at the Parade

Ariel at the Parade, watercolor on paper, 15x22 inches

It could be because I have not had the time to paint during the day, or because the weather is no longer very inviting for plein air painting, of maybe it is the anticipation of the arrival of our second son... but for one reason or another I have been really interested in painting portraits. (Even my last landscape painting was a symbolic portrait of my father, but more about that in another post.) At any rate, the image above is the latest painting I have completed, a portrait of my sister-in-law proudly wearing a brand new hat during the Fourth of July parade in Buena Vista, Colorado.

In case things continue as busy and I do not have a chance to post soon, I will take the opportunity to wish all viewers a wonderful holiday season and a great New Year!


  1. And I wish you a wonderful holiday and the best in the New Year! LOVELY portrait!
