Nostalgia

Watercolor 
15"x 22"
Another one in a bigger dimensions. In fact I am liking this size - bigger IS better(though framing these would be a costly affair). This is a portrait of a friend's grand mother. I have met her many times and I just love her face.She must be in her late eighties- but doesn't look her age. I am fortunate that my friend is a photographer and allows me to use some really nice shots of her to paint!

  5. She still has dreams in her eyes, Arti. To me that is amazing and you've once again outdone yourself in your portrait work.
