Special Time with Granddad
Oil on canvas
I captured this sweet moment of my husband with our grandson. It was on the first day we met him after his birth, and he seemed much more fascinated with his granddad than he was with the book being read to him.
From pastel animal “portraits” in elementary school, to renderings of family and friends in oils today, my art journey has been a long and rewarding one. To capture not only a likeness but a sense of place or moment in time is a special feeling. I have appreciated the ability to learn from great teachers both in person and now via zoom, or YouTube webinars. Finding my own “voice” has been a challenge, but retirement and the pandemic have provided the opportunity to devote more time to developing my own style and has provided a creative outlet for maintaining sanity.
