Family Portrait

Family Portrait (Commission)
Original 30" x 40" x 0.75" painting
Golden, Liquitex, and Chroma acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas

My patron contacted me to paint a commission of her, her husband, and their three Borzoi from photos she provided. This was a fun and challenging portrait to paint! I'm pleased to report that she was very happy with the composition.

Quote of the Day
"What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it." --J. Krishnamurti
