Three Pieces Inspired by Friends

Hello, Andrea here!

Adam and I are excited to share three newer pieces with you. All of these pictures were inspired by friends—a napping cowboy, the beautiful line of a friend's pose and the enjoyment of painting a model with artist friends.

I love it when I am able to paint alongside Adam's workshop attendees. I always learn a lot and have a great time painting with everyone. Drew is a friend of ours from church and an extremely talented country singer. During one of Adam's figurative workshops, Drew posed with his cowboy hat. He was happy to have such a relaxing pose!

Sara is the daughter of an artist friend of ours. While all of us were on a painting trip in Colorado, Sara graciously posed for several painting and photo sessions. She is a wonderful model and a joy to capture!
