Spring! (2016) - 48" x 36" oil on canvas
36 X 48 original oil on canvas. This is one of my favorite portraits, partly because it is huge, and partly because it captures the sheer joy of spring. She's an adorable little girl, but the painting is all about the emotion, that exuberance that hits you on a georgeous spring day. I think we all feel that sensation, and it could be any of us bouncing around like that! And really, in every one of my paintings, I'm trying to capture that sensation, that feeling of the moment.
