Rhonda & Evan, Oil on Canvas; © Jennifer Pohl
This is a portrait of a friend and her son that I did one one night some years ago. Evan must be nearly grown up by now! (The second glass of wine was mine, not Evan’s, in case any one is wondering.)
Just wanted to plug the new blog of a good friend, Brad Reid, who has also started posting for Illustration Friday. Brad not only went to art school with me, but he’s been a life-long friend of my husband. He helped us move just before Christmas — he drove the U-Haul, and even cleaned the fridge, for which this pregnant woman will be forever grateful. An extremely talented and award-winning painter (you can see one of my favourite pieces here), Brad has packed in his brushes to follow the dream of becoming an illustrator. Somebody give this man a job!
We are almost unpacked, and my easel is set up and ready to go, so I’ll be posting more recent work over the next few months. I seem to be over the worst of the morning sickness and intend to make the most of my energy and time while I can.
