19-SEP-2004 Cheryl Hawkins


This is one of my most prized possesions. It is a portrait of my oldest daughter and myself. It was painted by my Mom, a master artist and a success at everything she puts her hand to. I credit her with my interest in all things creative and my love of books.

She is a source of continous inspiration. Thanks, Mom!

(This is actually in a bigger frame but I cut most of it off as the painting was what I wanted to show.)

other sizes: small medium original

Beautiful painting... I can see why you prize it so. Cheryl, please do a close up of your glasses and hair so I can see her brushwork there.

At first I thought it was a portrait you took and used a PS filter. You did a good job of lighting the painting, no hot spots or dark shadows.
