This 12 x 16" acrylic is of my daughter, Laura. It was challenging because I was trying for a likeness Happy to say, I think it looks just like her. Painting people in acrylics is nerve-wracking- the slightest error and the person looks grotesque. I have learned to just keep plugging away with each little area until I get it right. Usually I would choose to use oils for a figurative piece, because blending is easier, but this one worked out ok in acrylics.
I have been a full time artist for over 30 years. I live in a small village outside Vancouver with my husband Alan, who is also an artist. I love to paint and I love to teach people how to paint. When I'm not painting, my favorite thing to do is spend time outdoors with my dog, Havoc.
