Standing by me
24 x 24 Oil on Linen Canvas Stretched on Wood Bars
Completed: December 2018
The inspiration for this painting started while sketching a nude model. I thought the pose was easy to draw and had an angelic expression. Little by little, the painting became a self portrait without being a self portrait. Ben joined me, as my faithful companions throughout the 12 years of his life. He has been standing by me, in my heart, and will be forever.
