Portrait of My Mother
Every artist should paint his mother! This painting is acrylic on canvas and is roughly 2' x 3' in size. Painted from a series of reference photos in 2006. I took about 10 pictures of her posing at various angles, so this picture is actually a composite. Sketched and painted by hand; no projectors or grid lines. Probably the best portrait I've ever painted.
