Private Concerto



12×9 original pastel on sanded paper

A reluctant model.  I was pushing a little.  It was just the two of us.  She did not want an audience.  It was hot, in the sun, a melting Georgia summer day.  A breeze came up and blew her beautiful hair, tussling it up a bit.  It made her look freer.  She started to forget the camera and get absorbed into her music.  If there is one thing I love more than anything, it is painting people, but painting music and people is truly a delight for me.  Thank you Alyssa Rose.
