"Marc & Chico"




















12 X 12 oil on masonite NFS

Have you ever seen two more adorable faces?
This is my friend, Adriana's, younger brother Marc
and his dog, Chico. Marc is in High School now ...
all grown up and still gorgeous, just like his sister.


Poor little Chico was hit by a car a few years ago

so they lost their best friend. They now have little

Nino who I have had the pleasure of painting
several times.

Adorable faces - beautiful painting. Love the close crop taking us directly to the eyes expressing obvious affection between these two!

Hello Gwen,
I tried commenting on this yesterday, but blogger was not cooperating with me, so hope you're not receiving 2 messages from me.

This is such a warm painting, I agree with Rosemary, the close crop is wonderful...beautiful eyes.

Gwen!

This looks really well done!

It's an interesting combination. The portrait is painterly and 3-dimensional yet is also very graphic and flat looking.

Very much like a mural!

Your days as a muralist seem to be creeping up on you!

Wonderful portrait of two sweeties.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas, and fantastic 2010, Gwen!

Gwen...these two are absolutely super. There is so much warmth and expression. Your DSFDF portrait is quite good, but I'll bet your self portrait, as good as it is, failed to do you justice. :-) Happy Holidays and drop by for a little Cheer!
