When I heard it was this lady’s 95th birthday, I took a big brave risk and presented her with her portrait. As it happened, I gave it to her in front of a roomful of friends. I’ve heard she really likes it 🙂
One of the people who saw the portrait told me she would love to have me paint her. It looked like so much fun! Well, I don’t paint people live (since it takes me many weeks to tweak and adjust and fuss) but I did have a picture to work with. I’ve given it a try, and I hope it looks like a lot of fun! So far no one has seen it so I don’t know if she is recognizable. One day, I’ll show the model what I’ve done, but for now I can still see some things that can be fixed.
What do you think? I’d love to see some comments 🙂
