This is the portrait I've been working on lately. I'm getting close to finishing it but I still see things I need to work on. Daniel is the brother of Maddalena, who I painted in December 2008. They both have the lightest blue eyes I've ever seen, as well as light blonde hair, fair skin and very red lips. I think I've definitely captured the likeness, just need to do some finessing. I'll post a better picture (I took this one) when it's completed. I'm also working on a double portrait that I will post when it gets further along.
I paint everyday life because I believe there is beauty in everything. I enjoy looking deeper to find the uniqueness that I know is there. I love the way light falls on the form whether it's a portrait, a still life, or a landscape. Mystery in the shadows or a story to be told is what I want the viewer to find in my paintings. How blessed I am to be able to create on a regular basis. Life is good. I hope you enjoy my work.
