Feel the Love
Oil on Canvas
20 x 24
I paint portraits of my family frequently. They are available and will let me take source photos of them and some of them will even sit for me. I also paint family because it makes me smile. As I paint I remember our times together and it just makes me happy.
This portrait is my younger brother, Richard, with a dear friend of his. I was in Chicago visiting Richard and doing some portrait sketches of him when Mamta stopped by to visit. I was fortunate to have my camera in my hand when they hugged...what a great moment to capture. I knew immediately I wanted to try to capture the love on canvas.
