More Portraits


Liz Caudill today at 28

My painting

I've been doing many more portraits than I've been posting, but I think I'll be getting back to some other things this week. Liz was hoping that she looked more happy, but it is VERY hard to hold a pleasant face for 2 1/2 hours. I asked her to take a photo of herself with a faint smile and give the painting back to me for revisions. Otherwise, it's been a historic day to see this darling girl pose in the same studio 20 years later. She lived on the coast between ages 3-12 and we've just shared a fabulous weekend visiting familiar places.
