Oil on Board
I was able to spend some more time on this today. There's really not much to say about it except that what you see today may be different tomorrow! One thing I'm thinking is that mom's face may have to fade out somewhat--the painting really is about the little guy. Mom is holding a cell phone. I want to keep it, but also want to make sure it's "readable". It doesn't look as much like the actual people as it did when I started. I'm not sure if I'm going to worry about that or not. I may just go ahead and let it be more of an "interpretive portrait". I like the freedom of that, but have a huge strain of "get it right" running through my veins!
