It's been a little while since I have been able to post anything, either on this blog or on Artists in Pastel. However, I want to post this portrait of a dear friend, who passed away earlier this year at the good age of 90. I had not attempted a portrait before this, but Madeleine Meunier was a great and kind lady, and had welcomed me to France some years ago like a long-lost member of the family. This is my tribute.
