Daily small paintings- and an occasional larger one-in a quest to refine my craft and above all, enjoy the process

Jed's grandparents were in their early 50's when this photo was taken, as far as we can figure. Their names were Beulah and Alva. I was attracted to the composition because of the way the light sky leads into her dress, because of their postures and because of that cool looking car. It's not really intended to be a portrait; I worked hard to depict faces that were believable but not too detailed- it's hard on a little 7x5 piece!

Wow Layne, you did so much on such a small piece, this is wonderful!ReplyDelete
This is a fun painting! Very well executed. Love the memories.ReplyDelete
Isn't it funny how names move in and out of popularity? I alway laugh that only women my age are named Virginia--it is a name no longer in favor. In the 6th grade I met a little girl name Bambi. I was so envious! But my mother was wiser than I knew.
Great subject. Love the way you have painted their faces.ReplyDelete

I found your website and blog via Carol Carmichael's blog and I'm loving your work! And this is a wonderful little painting. My high school English teacher was named Beulah Harper!ReplyDelete
