Sister Love, Missing Mom

"Paula", 12 x 12, oil

This is another project from the class I am taking with Misty Mawn. It's an oil painting of my sister. The oil was still wet when I photographed it. I am hoping this will dry by the time her birthday rolls around in June. I LOVE oil paints but that is the drawback. They take forever to dry. 

This is a flat style of painting (something Misty taught us). I love the effects and will do more with it. 

Also, I want to acknowledge that today is my Mom's birthday. She's been gone 11 years now and I miss her so much. I still think about her every single day. Happy Birthday, Mom.

Have a great weekend everybody!
