Portraits of St. Louis Artists: Jane Martin

.
I'm in Chicago on business so that's the reason for few comments on your blogs today. I'm actually working. Please believe me.

This is Jane Martin (click the link to see more of her work), one of the artists at the Soulard Art Market cooperative, where I've shown some photos. Martin had some of her paintings on display at Tomatofest. That's where this was taken. She was in a little covered tent thing on a bright day and the light was gorgeous (with the help of some fill flash). And what happy blue eyes. That's the joy of street portraiture.

Workin' smurkin'. Are you trying to sell us a load of poles??? Well you're right about Jane. Lovely photo. Those artist's tents do make for some nice light if you're lucky. Cool portrait B.
