    Portrait of my Daughter

    Well, Marilyn Munroe got me going, so I attempted a portrait of my beautiful daughter. It is hard doing someone you know so well, but I am delighted with the outcome, developing a whole new method that seems to work for me.

    Thank you so much Marilyn Anne, she is gorgeous in nature and in looks. I am still fiddling with the image and will post an update soon.

    Lovely portrait... your daughter is very beautiful!
    I like the expression you have painted

    Has a 1930s feel to me in a way. Don't ask why. But somewhere in my memory is pinging a resonance with this one stylistically, also the hair style, the simplicity of the garment, the artistically textured background, the bits of jewelry.

    It's wonderfully expressive, as someone who has an active life inside themselves and out. She's extremely well painted, with some of the artist's emphasis commenting through the look of what was being emphasized.

    Have you ever seen those old movies of artists or photographers working a model to get 'the' expression and pose? This has that kind of feel, as if you yelled "Hold it! Right there. . . Don't move. . . " You've caught a moment of depth or you infused it with what you know and feel.

    She's stunning and spirited (or so I get from this painting). Brilliantly captured features. . . but you ought to know, you gave them to her knowing full well she would have to sit for you. It's light years in quality between this and the Marylin portrait. You have to print this one and put a frame around it and hang it forthwith. Waste no time.
