Some More Older Portraits

Good Monday Morning. After a busy weekend of 'playing' outside, having my mom over for lunch in the gazebo, letting the furry hearts run around the yard and visiting a friend in the hospital, I am really looking forward to a busy and productive week in the studio. However, I must admit that part of me is over in Germany with my dad right now, so in that vein I thought I would show you a few more of my old portraiture work and then we'll get back back to some brand spanking new imagery. The above portrait is my grandma and grandpa.

This is a dog portrait that I did years ago. The family had it commissioned as a surprise for their dad, it apparently hung in his office for years.
I love doing couple portraits, this was a local couple whose daughters commissioned me to make this as an anniversary surprise.

This was another commission which was unfortunately not accepted or paid for! The woman wasn't very happy with it but in my defense the reference was horrible and I did the best I could with what I had to work with. Regardless, I think it is still a pretty nice couples image, apparently it was taken shortly after this couple was engaged in 1944.

And I'll end with another family portrait. This is my dad's great great grandmother I believe. The background of the photograph was very cluttered and busy so I just added a few of the simpler items which I think brings the eye towards the lovely woman and her handcraft.

Well that is about all for today. There is alot to catch up on and get into so I shall get on with it right away. Be Well everyone and happy creating.
