“I Do” (see attached link)
Pencil, pastel, and watercolor
I was delighted by the originating photograph of this painting. It was sent to me by a client who wondered if I could “do” this portrait of her parents for Christmas. I did it with great (if markedly sentimental) pleasure. I’ll admit to getting rid of several pesky relatives in the yard (paradoxically enough, privacy is a scarce commodity in the country), in addition to the multiple scarred/damaged parts of the photograph.
In any case, I think that this is sweet (a word I seldom use), and there’s only one song (one of my favorites by Pat Alger) for it (are you reading this, Carolyn Callahan?). Go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4WqNNWCKkk…
