Chloe through the years

"Chloe" (conte and pastel pencil, 10x8 inches) sold (commission yours for $150!)

I've drawn Chloe every year since she was two. Some years I've drawn her two or three times. I think she must be about 18 now, but I don't like to think about it because it makes me feel old, lol! No, really I think it's wonderful to watch a beautiful girl grow up!

Here are some other portraits of Chloe through the years...





Chloe and her mom

And last year Chloe's mom Clover added an album to Facebook, showing many of the portraits I've done for their family, including some of the cousins and others... See it here! (if it's public)

Bosco

"Bosco" (16x12 conte and pastel pencil) sold

One of my clients' orders this Christmas Season. Usually I ignore backgrounds, but this was a new fence just built by Bosco's human, and it had special significance. The wood texture was actually quite fun!

To see more pencil portrait samples like this one, and for ordering info, visit www.ritakirkmandrawings.com. Now's the best time to order for Valentine's Day!

Glimmer

"Glimmer" (pastel, 12x12 inches) $425 unframed for a limited time

My first painting of 2018! (sort of...) This was a demo during my workshop with the Central Texas Pastel Society in early December. I just tweaked it a tiny bit so I could post it today.

I found out last month that I will be in three excellent art festivals next spring (Bayou City Art Fest in Memorial Park Houston, Woodlands Waterway Arts Fest near Houston, and [finally!] Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival) so I've got to start filling out my inventory now!

Here are some progress shots of Glimmer:










Thanks for watching! Please share!

Sol

"Sol" (pastel, 12x12 inches) sold

I had a couple of clients who wanted "Soleil" pretty much at the same time, so I sold that one to the first client and painted this one (flipped the reference) for the new client. It's kinda nice when my work is in demand!
