Ezra's Easter - SOLD

This is nothing very serious. I'm thinking about painting Ezra so since today was Easter, I did a quick study in Pastels (both the color and the medium). I rarely work with pastels but it was something I could do quickly and for fun.....I didn't finish it but what I was really thinking about was the crop...anyway I was so amused by the outcome that I thought I'd share it for your entertainment!

Parisian artist in Montmartre

A couple of weeks ago I was in Paris and visited the Sacre Coeur and Montmartre. I was taken with the artists who fill the space between cafes and street performers. The artists themselves were more interesting than the art. I loved this man. He was just sitting there watching as people passed. Of course he was wearing a beret - what could be more Parisian?

Self Portrait

For a Rogues Gallery challenge in Wet Canvas here's a self portrait...a different style and always a dismal effort when one is painting one's self! Honest - I used to be younger!
