Jennifer (Private Collection)

I started this yesterday though I have been thinking about it for a very long time. She is seated next to a window and the light is so bright that her image almost fades into the light. I found a wonderful photo of an old lady and wrote to the photographer asking permission to use the photo. When he responded, his avitar was this photo which included him and his wife. I was so taken with her that I asked permission to paint her (Jennifer) too. She is goreous, so I only hope I've done her justice. This one is quite subtle for me but if you click on the painting you can see a much larger version.

Jazz # 3 = SOLD

I finally made my way back into the studio. It feels good to be back though perhaps a little strange. Instead of coming in the house to check on Kevin, now I come in and check on Tommie the cat. Whatever works right?! This is a continuation of the Jazz series. It will be interesting to see how or if they all fit together in the end...
