Number 7, 30 Friends in 30 Days

This is Dorothy’s granddaughter, Ruby. According to Dorothy, who I would trust with my children’s lives, Ruby is brilliant, talented, and can tell jokes, all before the age of three! But they’re related, so it all makes perfect sense.

I really got a kick out of this picture. Love the hat with the big flowers on it. And the bright orange background. Thanks for sending it, Dorothy!

Here are the progress pics:

This is my 30 Friends in 30 Days series. Each day I take a friend’s selfie and make a pastel painting from it. Then I post it to ebay at auction for 7 days. Follow my progress as I learn to paint pastel portraits with a little help from my friends.
