A Painting for Today

...and maybe more to come. While in KC got into the family photo albums. Took some memorable black and whites and thought of doing a series of them. Here is the first.

"Mom on Vacation" - 6" x 6" oil on canvas panel
There is a little glare on the surface of the canvas and it makes it look like the canvas isn't covered, but it is. Hm.
Thanks for the pose, Mom! I'm sure many kids have had to wonder - what did mom and dad do on vacation? Often the photos would come back - little tiny figures in the background, with the added inability and frustration of making out what was going on. My favorites are the close-ups. This photo was in the really bright sun, my Nikon would have not liked it, but the Brownie didn't seem to care! It's always fun to add color to what is in black and white. Amazingly these shades have made a comeback over time. Ha!
