"Beverly" portrait #2

Oil on Canvas

I painted a portrait of this lovely lady last April (posted here on April 21) and was asked to do another one so both of her children could have one.  I was given two photos of her to work with for the 1st painting and chose what I liked best from each to make a painting I thought would work well.  Then the opportunity came to paint the second one and I ended up taking what I hadn't used before to paint this one.  It has made for two distinctly different portraits--not only in appearance, but also in mood.  Fortunately, everyone is happy with both and I had a great experience doing them.
