Portrait of My Daughter
This is a portrait of my daughter sitting in an old art deco chair that belonged to her great grandmother. The Dog is Oz, and Boisley is the cat calmly looking out of the window over her shoulder. Courtney has always loved books so a portrait with out books would not be complete. The books are on an old Hoosier cabinet passed down from me, on which sits the infamous trailing Philodendron which has traveled with Courtney from city to city and manages to thrive in any environment. Can there be any more sentiment stashed in a portrait? Well, yes! The painting in the background is one of the first canvas paintings I painted and it travels with my daughter and hangs in her home.
