A Few Years Prior
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?
