Letty - original oil pastel portrait painting by Connie Chadwell

Letty is a great model and I love her name.  I think her real name is Violet.  This oil pastel is on 12 x 9" Pastelbord.
We are having the most beautiful spring here in the Texas Hill Country.  All of my roses are in full bloom - some of them will bloom only once, but what a show that one bloom is!  This weekend I will plant more of these glorious plants - if I can find places for them.  I always do.
Thanks so much for stopping by - have a lovely day!
