Portrait of Julia

My sweet big-sister, Cass, wanted to know what I am working on. I have a lot of paintings in the works. This is a drawing for a piece I am really excited about. I can't wait to paint it!

The model is Julia Pugh. Her husband, Jeff, is a talented landscape artist. We are working on a trade and this will probably be the piece I offer him. Julia's dad, Gary Smith, and my dad studied art at BYU together. I thought it would be fun to trade Jeff with a portrait of Julia after I saw a portrait that Gary did of my mom, when they were probably about our age, hanging in my parents house.

I've been drawing too and I can't wait to paint. Do we have a theme for our show yet?
