OK, so I have a friend who covets an original oil pastel painting I have on my wall. It was made by an artist friend of mine, Trudy Jane Patricio Pullen, and I love it too so I won't give it to her. But, today was her birthday so I tried to replicate the picture for her. Though it does not look quite like the original, I rather like it. Here's the reproduction.
Here's the original by T.J.
She's amazing. More talent in her big toe than in .... well, in anyone I know. (except my big brother)
Always fun to learn from the masters.
