I am trying to meet a double challenge artistically, from God and from a friend, so pay tribute to my mom who I lost years ago and reboot my art path. This is the beginning of a portrait that will be part of a series of women in scripture and also a portrait that does pay tribute to mom. The model is actually my daughter Becky, but she looks so much like the gram she never met it is almost an amalgamation of the two. I'm praying I catch that, the eyes especially, but it is more about mannerisms and expression...which again is amazing because the two never met. I have a long way to go (I'm doing my powerful Becky as the prophetess Deborah), but I'm excited. The start seems good.
This is Barbara, my mother.
