Betty's Passion

17"x13" Soft Pastel on Wallis paper

This is the second image I've created from a series of photos I took of  Betty working one day.  She loves pottery, along with gardening, are true passions of hers.  Betty and Bill Printy own the Iron & Lace Store in Bentonsport, IA.   Betty is always giving demonstrations on the wheel for small groups interested in the craft.  Amazingly enough, she's shy when having her picture taken doing it.

This painting was commissioned by Betty's oldest daughter and given to her daughter for her 21st birthday.  I'm ever grateful for being a part of such joyous gifts of love.
