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.
