Blue Madonna


Blue Madonna is a female nude pastel drawn from a live model in my studio. The title may seem odd. The model Elena is a kind and sincere woman. That Innocence  radiated out of her. I never know the direction a pastel will take. When I had finished the figure my hand put in a halo around her head. The piece has that quiet sense of reflection often found in paintings of a Madoona which is how it received its title.
