Madame Silver

I'm liking these little portraits. In my eyes they have character. I just started doing these this weekend and I'm hooked already. This portrait was also done on Stonehenge paper with Prismacolor pencils, that's my normal medium. I decided to title her "Madame Silver", it just seemed to fit. And since the first one had a story, she does too.

Title: "Madame Silver"
4" x 6"

Her Story:
Fragile, not at all feeble. She labors in love. Revealing a tender, considerate and helpful nature, she has weathered life's storms. From deep within her soul she delicately extends understanding and forgiveness toward all and holds to her belief that while there's life there's hope.

Tranquility Angel

This is on Stonehenge paper with Prismacolor Pencils. I did it yesterday with no references. It's kind of fun doing one this small. I loved her expression of calm acceptance so I named her "Tranquility Angel". Then it seemed as if she begged to have a story to go with her

Title: "Tranquility Angel "
4" x 5"

Her Story:
Her tranquil expression radiates elegance and beauty. She is kind and compassionate, aging with grace. Faith maintains her confidence that there is much good to be found in all people.
