Painting Payton

Payton with Me ... End of Demo at ArtSpace Herndon, January 31, 2015. She's the one in the tutu.
What a joy today!

Getting Started. I'm guessing this isn't the best view. I'm laying in the darks in brown and blue on an ochre ground
Thanks to Payton, her mom Lauren, grandmother Meg ... all who attended, Randy, Mom & Dad and Les at Herndon ArtSpace.

It was iPad entertainment needed toward the end for Payton
I'll do my best to post photos ... more to come, probably past when this might show up in your (subscribers) mailbox so check back at -- where they look better anyway.  Tomorrow will come my photo of the painting. My camera is indeed on the blitz. Fuzzy photos anyone? These are all from various iPhones.

Really, more to come! I don't want you to miss out on the day.
