Collection of the Artist

Well, this is a hard one.  On my grandmothers 99th birthday I asked her if she would sit for me for a portrait.  Really, I just wanted to spend some time with her, the painting was a bonus.  Just about every thursday morning, I went to visit her and paint.  After a few months, she said to me.  “Nanci, is is common for people my age to get their portrait painted?” I never laughed so hard.  How do I answer that? Do I say that people don’t normally live as long as you do, or the fact that not many people have their portrait as it is…. hmmm… so I said “Grandma, I am pretty sure, in all of history, very few people have ever had their portrait painted at your age.”   She was so surprised and honored.  I will never forget that one!

A couple of months before her 100th birthday, she became very tired and no longer wanted to sit for me.  I HAD to have this finished in time for her big birthday party! So I took a few photos and stayed up night and day in my studio to finish just in time.  Since I switched to photos, I can not see as much as you can when you paint from life.  So I got it presentable for the party, and needed just one more day to finish the details. 

The 100th birthday party came, and she was so excited!  Sadly, the day after her 100th birthday she passed away.

😥

So here is my unfinished portrait of my Grandma Agnes at 100 years.

To end on a happy note, this painting was excepted into the MN State Fair this last summer! What an honor! I just wish Grandma could have seen it there.

Merry Chirstmas Grandma! I miss you!

 There is something timeless about seeing a painting of Santa Claus in oil. This is the second in the series of Santa portraits I have done.   After many requests for another santa, I caught Santa reading the letters from the kids.  He does read every letter!  In the background we have his bookcases of journals of all the kids, taking notes on if they have been good or bad.

In the Limited Ed Canvas series, I am offering a custom touch, add your own names to the books in the background. $50 for 1, $10 extra for each additional name.  What a great gift to pass on for generations!

 There is something timeless about seeing a painting of Santa Claus in oil. This is the first in the series of Santa portraits I have done.   To celebrate Santa coming to the town of Hudson WI every year for 25 years. It is fun to see the kids who used to come visit him, now bring their own kids.  So here in the globe could be any quiet little town, but people from Hudson, WI will know the landmarks.

This is my first oil I ever painted in color. Yikes! It took me over 200 hours of just painting.  Not including the drawing and designing time.  I give Santa a huge THANK YOU since he came to my studio in the middle of the summer (without any air conditioning) wearing his fur coat for this.  I was sure I was on Santa’s bad list, but when I finished the painting he said I was now again on the “Good” list.   feww…………  haha
