Color Sketch for Painting on Silk, John of God

Here is a color sketch I did on my iPad for another painting  on silk I want to do. I have been quite sick for the last 2 weeks but am leaving to see the healer John of God from Brazil in a few days so my hopes for healing are high.

New Sketches Betsy's Hens and December Morning

Have been struggling with the health thing for the last couple of weeks so I am spending a lot of time in bed or resting. I did one sketch on paper but the other one I did on my iPad while in bed. I am so grateful to have the iPad to use as a creative outlet when I am really struggling with the fatigue issues.

The painting with the chickens  is named after my High School friend Betsy. At our 30th high school reunion she asked me to do a painting with chickens in it, She has her own flock of laying hens and they are her beloved pets. So here it is Betsy! It will eventually become a painting on silk.

Commisioned House Portrait on Silk

Here are some photos of the commissioned house portrait I have been working on. It is such a beautiful house it was a joy to paint it.
