 Custom Oil Portrait
Carol and Freckles, October, 1973
18x14 inches / oil on panel
This was quite a lot of fun to paint.  Working from an old photograph from 1973, I'd color corrected it in my mind's eye while painting, lowered the roofline, raised the ground level, moved the left window toward the center more, and added a third window in order to improve the composition. Such a nostalgic painting and my client is absolutely thrilled with it, saying I captured her and Freckles even better than the photograph!
