Portrait of Clare by Robin Maria Pedrero
Clare has a sparkling contagious glow which I aimed to capture in portraying her. I am pleased with the final piece. The portrait received approval today via email with an "I totally love it!!!" response and will be picked up this weekend. Portrait collectors have the option to order small reproduction giclees, specialty gift items with the image like mugs, Christmas ornaments, journals, or tiles from me. Peggi Habets has this relevant quote from John Singer Sargent on her blog, "Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend." It's been so nice to have Clare's smiling face greeting me in my studio.
