Portrait of Mom: Sitting on Sunday

My mom was apprehensive in sitting, because she was worried about how she would be depicted.

She watched the movie " What women want" with Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt while I rushed to paint her in less then 2 hours.
My goal was to block in the shades and plains while creating a harmonious color scheme.
I have been using a lot more paint ever since my class with Jerry Weiss at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. That means I finish work quicker and need to buy more supplies!!!
Oh the expense.. Fun!

    Thanks for sharing your mom's painting, it's trully harmonius. I'm so happy for you that you're able to take those classes at the Lyme Academy...

    Best always
