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. Pastels (Rembrandt and Sennelier) on Clairefontaine Pastelmat.


  1. What a wonderful tribute!
    And very nicely executed.

  2. Susan, I only saw your comment today, as I had not revisited this section of the blog since I posted it. But thanks for your kind words. I must attempt another portrait - maybe a self-portrait next time!
