A pleasant afternoon

A warm summer afternoon, a gentle breeze blowing through my studio, and my heart side sitting with me as we listen to a recording of Ram Dass talking about getting old. I started by painting Mount Si. When that was done, oh the obvious, I realize I have a perfect model before me. So first I painted his face. Oh, I didn’t want to stop. So I painted his hands. Hands are very hard to paint (says the lady who paints portraits). Sometimes I put hands into a portrait for the challenge. Other times, like this, there was no way to get them both into the same plane. So I painted them each separately. What a beautiful day!
