This is the portrait I did last week. Its of my husband’s mother Lucille, who passed away a few years ago. Its a gift to his father for Christmas and one I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now. The painting was done from a colorized photo, taken around the time she earned her teaching certificate, circa 1930. Thats why the scholarly pose. She was a shy, petite woman, who raised 4 sons and 2 daughters and taught her family to cherish each other above all else.
Merry Christmas Ambrose!
Merry Christmas everyone!
