Alicia Keys in pastel

Alicia Keys was one of my favorite artists growing up.  I always enjoyed her piano playing combined with her soulful singing.  I drew her years ago in charcoal when I was much younger.  So, it was exciting for me to go back to doing a portrait of her in Soft Pastel, a medium that I never expected myself to enjoy using so much.  

I hope you guys enjoy!

Until the next time, keep busy staying dizzy!

 

New Year's Portraits

I greeted the New Year of 2016 with my friends and a very cozy cheerful gathering.  Armed with a mechanical pencil and some Sharpie Oil Paint Markers, i knew what i had to do.  

Chewy looking pensive while we were playing a game of Munchkins.  What a weird game.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable way to welcome the new year.  Good food, great company and a good night.
