Painting pure beauty
and woman who shared a great love. I am painting
them as they were when they were young, heading
out for a date. The reference photos for the man,
my client's father are small, blurry and few and far
between, because the man was the photographer in
I have some beautiful images of the mother, but none
in the pose I'm painting. So today I'm showing you
a close up of the woman's face. She was an incredibly
lovely woman, with glowing, porcelain skin. The two
of them made a smashing and daring pair. I like the
hesitant look in the woman's eyes. And her daughter
tells me she was a shy young woman.
Meanwhile I am painting the edges of my paintings,
for the Artwalk show, making labels and running
through endless checklists in my mind. It was a long,
but excellent day at school today.
Have an enjoying-your-own-great-love-story day.
