pastel, watercolor, and pencil


The portrait is of Herve Mommeja-Marin and his much-beloved parents.  Unfortunately, his father died, all too young, at only age seventy-one, a couple of years ago.  Consequently, I’m awfully glad to have painted this portrait and that it’s in Herve’s hands these days. (2023: for those who might be trying to construct some sort of chronology out of these entries?….Herve, himself, died in 2022, at age 51).
