Program at the MAPS meeting on Oct. 27

I will be giving a demonstration at the Midamerica Pastel Society on Oct. 27, 2009 after the MAPS meeting which starts at 7PM at the The Village Presbyterian Church, 6641 MIssion Road, Prairie Village, Ks. 66208.

I will be talking about the Grateful Hearts Project Portraits and projecting a personality and realism when working from photographs. How to discern the reality from a flat image, how to use props and models to help with how cloth falls, how light hits, how to pick out the planes of the face. I will also be talking about how to start from a sketch to work out all the main shapes of the image before going on to finding details.

Come out and see how to work from limited photography images and make the most of their potential.
See you there,

New Website for the Grateful Hearts Project

Army Spc. Joshua Munger, 22
Artist:Beverly Rose
Painted for his Mother

Well, its finally up and running. The Grateful Hearts Project has its own website. You can find all the paintings of the fallen soldiers that we have done for the families free of charge by going to I have received four new requests and will be giving them out to the artists for completion of the portraits for the families soon. This project has been a wonderful way to honor the sacrifices made-not only by our soldiers-but also their families. I know that I speak for all the artists involved when I say how honored and humbled we are to be able to paint the portraits for the families.

Buddy and the Vet

Buddy and I went to the vet yesterday. I needed to get some more pain meds for
Miko and their heartworm meds. We also had them do a blood test on Buddy before we try the behavior medication. His constant anxiety and stress when I'm not with him is overwhelming him. I will keep you posted on our progress. He is making great strides. We have been walking in the park by our house to get socialized. He is now able to get around the geese without going into a panic. He even let a couple with a boxer stop and talk and pet him, without him shaking. Progress is slow but steady!

We'll keep you posted on our progress with the behavior modification.
signing off for now
Jennylynne and Buddy

Longview Art and World Music Festival

Had a great time at the art fair this last weekend. Sold two original paintings and made lots of new friends and art collectors. Friday the wind was way too strong to set up but we were able to set up Saturday morning and enjoyed wonderful weather both Saturday and Sunday. To all who came out and stopped by my tent-Thanks! If you missed the fair this year-see you next year!
