Super friends in the Month of Love

It seems like an endless activity, but in my free moments I’ve been sorting
through the shelves of one of the bookcases in my studio. I found this portrait
of my good friend and one of my favourite artists — Marcia LaBelle Cohen.
I’m not sure when it was painted.  And although I really like the painting for
its loose, quick quality --it is not the best likeness of my gorgeous friend.

Still I like the piece's cheery feeling, and felt happy when I found it tonight. I
hope that someday I do an excellent portrait of Marcia. She is lucky to own
portraits of herself by famous artists who have caught her magnificent beauty

I sometimes dream of doing wonderful portraits of all my artist friends, but
at the moment that remains an idea. It is a good time for dreaming, a good
time for ideas, and an excellent time to sort through the work that’s already done.

Have a loving your friends and discoveries day.
