I decided to have another go at using oil pastels. Still trying to learn how to use this medium. I selected a nude as my subject matter and focused on the shadows of the upper chest and clavicle area.

This is my rendition of Brandy Herbert, a friend of mine from high school.  She’s a music guru,  producing sessions for other songwriters/singers or playing on recording sessions for others  as a guest artist or “hired-gun.” She still does a couple of guest-concerts a year and is playing with about 4 different bands and projects in various jazz-venues around Colorado.

She toured with the original Platters, was lead guitarist for the Bobbie Gentry Show tour and has played alongside a bunch of our musical heroes including Jimmy Reed, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Clanton, the Shangri-La’s, Teresa Brewer, Lionel Hampton, Burl Ives, Nancy Wilson and many, many more.

But, more important, she’s my friend.
