Last year on this day I posted this photo of my painting of
Marty's Mom with a Santa hat on the portrait's head. I was
visiting my friend Marty up the street and saw this. What
a treat. This year I'm showing it again because I love the painting.
How sweet to see that image of the wonderful woman who was Marty's
Mom. She posed for me in my studio -- and that was long
before COVID. So I got to talk to her, and know her and
it is delightful doing a portrait using live sittings.
The colours were not my norm at the time -- I mean the
bright yellow -- but I love how it jumps off the blue of the
satin throw behind her. This portrait captures the
visual energy of Marty's mother. And I'm so glad it does.
Have a loving your life day.
