Winter 1947

Winter 1947
Small 6x8 original oil painting. Oil on linen. Painting is sold unframed.

At Christmas my mother brought a dvd collection of old family home movies. One scene of a snowstorm circa 1947 caught my eye. I froze (pun intended) the scene on the TV and painted this from the couch. In it are my mother, her brother, sister and a family friend. Plus the dog. Mom is second from left. She's about 11 or 12 years old.

About Me

My photo
Elmira, New York, United States
In many ways I think like a photographer. The image itself is becoming more and more important to me; the actual application of paint less and less. Blasphemy in some painterly circles. I choose to paint figures and portraits because I consider them the most difficult subject.
