Orphan's Day Out, 12x12 Oil
This one is a nostalgic image of my mother and her twin sister (Alternate name: Patsy and Mickey, but I wanted to save that for another painting I'm doing) on an outing. They got some time away from the orphanage during the summer, and they both treasured that time. I THINK I'm done with this. As usual, the hardest part was my mother's face - which I had to make a random face. I wonder if I'll ever actually be able to paint her. She's been gone now 12 years. Does it ever get easy?
