Mother And Son

Mother And Son   SOLD
What a joy it was for me to be asked to paint this for someone to give as a gift!  My greatest desire was to capture the happiness that both the young man and his mother were feeling on his wedding day.  I think you can see this in her beautiful face and the closeness of his embrace. It began as a black and white painting, using just three colors: ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, and white. I chose to make the skin tones less gray and warmer so that there would be more radiance.
