Natalie

Not For Sale
12x9" Oil on Stretched Canvas

While painting a portrait of my sister several years ago, I began to see her son's likeness.  That is when I knew I was on the right track.  As I painted Natalie, it was encouraging to see the resemblance to her mother, whom I painted over twenty years ago.  This is done from a photograph which I took last summer on the beach.  My great-niece, Natalie.  Precious child.

I find the expression to be very moving and it makes this portrait come alive.
Loved your rose paintings too. Especially the way you painted them.
