Did you ever see a person who you really
needed to paint?  Recently,   I went to
Carlyle Fairgrounds in PA, to see the car
show.  This man was walking with a friend
and had "that face" that called me!!   So of
course, I took his photo.  It was such a
beautiful day so the light hitting his face was
perfect with all those wonderful shadows..
which later I saw in the photo...AHHH!!!!
The little things that make me happy...

Mother's Day Portrait

I have two beautiful daughters....both amazing
Mom's.  This is my youngest, Jennifer, holding
Lexi just a few days old.  I wanted to paint a
portrait for her for Mother's Day.  I took this
reference picture when Lexi came home from
the hospital.  It was a candid shot which to me
is sometimes the best.  There is nothing more
beautiful than the love between Mom and child.
