Audrey in a plaid dress sitting in rocking chair.

This painting of my daughter Audrey was painted around 1988. The photo reference ,I believe, was taken several years before this date. Oil on canvas 16″ wide x 20″ high. The direction of the light and the blue trim on the dress is important to the design of this painting. The sock that has fallen around Audrey’s ankle was not planned but becomes a nice touch.

    Absolutely love it! The fallen sock is the perfect compliment to the expression on her face and the body language of her pose. Life captured in the truth of that moment is precious in its honesty.
