Special Celebrity Portrait Model Rob Stewart

For our Monday afternoon open studio session, we were honored to have local celebrity Rob Stewart, from Channel 6 "Rob on the Road" program.  

Here we are from the model's point of view!
Cassatt, my art dog, wanted to pose with Rob also!

Here are our works in progress!  Everyone had a great time and Rob Stewart was such a delight and wonderful artist model!
Here's a link to my friend Bruce Hancock's blog about our wonderful afternoon with Rob Stewart posing as our artist model
