Today I am posting some of my mother’s pastel portraits.
This was the non-winning portrait of the Jane Pauley Christmas Card, Sally’s favorite of the entries. This portrait now sits in my parents’ garage – it was one of my Sally Sightings, found during a tornado watch shortly after her death.
Here is the Blue Ribbon winner, a portrait of a niece. Technically, the judges were correct but as I like the subject matter above, it is also my winner.
This is a portrait of my maternal grandmother, Susie, which Sally painted from a photograph.
Likewise, the Self-Portrait with Spouse.
