A portrait of Jenifer




I finally completed this painting of my daughter Jenifer.  It began it several years ago, after I took a workshop with Ted Nuttal.  I struggled with it and finally got some advice last week from my good friend and mentor, Kitty Wallis---she said don't be afraid to go darker.  I did as she suggested, and I like the result.  Kitty might say to go even darker than this, but it is enough for me.  Jen likes it, too...so it's done.  BTW, she's still just as pretty as that great day we enjoyed in the Columbia River Gorge when I took the photo I used as a reference.
