Portrait of Dee

DD copyI have been doing a lot more portrait work in the past few years.  I normally do mostly marine subject matter.   I have welcomed the portrait commissions

This piece is acrylic on panel.  I enjoy the challenge of working a portrait in acrylic instead of the oil.  With very little blending time it keeps me on my toes.

      Her name is Dee Dee Jones and she was from Richmond, Va. She passed away last year at the age of 98. She kept her family in line with that look right to the end. The painting only took two days to complete because I HAD to get that expression on canvas that was so her. I think she was the quintesential grandmother and perhaps that is what draws you to the her?

    yes, you’re absolutely right! two days to complete? geez, amazing talent.
