A Few Years Prior

8x8, oil on canvas.

So this is mom only a few (maybe 10?) years prior to the reference used for last painting. 
Aahh well, if I do more paintings of her at this stage maybe I can erase the images in my mind of her last moments.  But enough about that. 

I am hooked on portraits!  Having said that, I have a landscape on my easel now that I'm having fun with but I secretly want to get back to portraits.  I have a few ideas burning in the back of what's left of my mind that I really cant wait to try.  While I'm happy with the progression of these paintings I think they lack the seriousness and drama of, say, Rembrandts portraits.  Might as well aim high, right?
