Spring Portraits, Spring Cleaning
Portraits! I never felt portraits were my strength, but what better time than the present to improve? Just before we became covid-confined to home, my lovely daughter Sophia and I took a portrait painting class at the Newport Art Museum together. It was brilliant. We loved every minute of it and both markedly improved our skills. Here’s a shout out to our talented teacher, Jeanne Tangney, who was wonderful; we loved her.
Below is one of my many spring portraits, which pales in comparison to Sophia’s works (a truly talented artist). We worked from live models who were a joy to paint. I will continue to pursue my skills, but as with most of my art, time spent painting brings me meditative tranquility, mindful bliss and fulfills my painterly soul. What do you do, that makes your springtime heart sing?
