OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAmong the many portrait commissions I’m finishing in time for Christmas is this little gem.  “Dodo” was created from a photograph taken in the 1930s.  I wanted to capture the feel and painting sensibility of that period as I worked.  The client has in mind a whole series of paintings of their grandparents, creating a portrait legacy of ancestors.  I think this is a wonderful thing.  Imagine having such a collection of long lost loved ones.
