This brother and sister are the subject of my current portrait, which is almost finished. I must finish the hands and feet and finesse the bottom lower right quadrant and her skirt. I can vouch for these 2 being "angels" since they are my much-beloved niece and nephew, Alyssa and Nicholas.
A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.
This large-mouth bass is a character in my first children's book published in 2002. Her name is Madame Mossback. She can outsmart any fisherman. Note for experienced fishermen: one angler is "cheating" by using bait & a spinner together. He is desperate!
