“Ashley”

18×24
Oil on Canvas

This is a portrait entirely done from a photo.  I find working on a posthumous portrait and needing to work entirely from photos very challenging.  In this case Ashley was taken from us way too soon, in an accident in a snow storm a few years ago.  She loved to pose for the camera and her parents really loved the pose in this one. This said “Ashley” all over it.  With a handful of photos, and a lot of extra studio time, here is the completed painting.

  1. I have two daughters and this captures attitude perfectly. Such a sad ending to a young beautiful life, that’s why every moment counts, whether young or old. Wonderful Job!
