Little Girl with Berries

Oil, 36 x 24

Private Collection 


I did this one for fun. I was so enamored with the pose and expression that I went ahead and painted this little girl from a cell phone pic!  It is amazing how sometimes artistic motivation can overcome the want of more complete reference material. 


Cara 

Oil, 18 x 24, Detail 

Private Collection 


Hands are always a challenge, especially with the way Cara gently folded her right hand under her chin.  Making sure that the hand looked natural in such a position was a  double challenge.

Although I prefer to work from my own photos, I managed this portrait from a snapshot of a young lady and her horse who together graduated from riding school.

Would you like a commissioned portrait of a special person, family member, friend, or yourself?  Consider a portrait as a gift to a prominent corporate officer or community leader. Pet portraits or renderings of a beloved home-place are also popular.
