The Redeeming Quality of Robert



I have been so busy that I missed father's day when I originally intended to post this painting.


I did this painting of my son Andrew and his father, Robert, about twenty years ago and is my only attempt at figures. The photo was taken at my mother in laws little farm in Los Lunas, New Mexico.

What a sweet picture/painting. If your first attempt is this good, you should try it again. The human figure is not an easy subject. You did a nice job.

Hi Cara, that's a sweet painting, you really should do it again. It would be interesting to see how the older, wiser Cara would paint it:) I tried to visit your blog last week but it kept crashing! Or maybe it was my computer, who knows?

Lilli - Thanks for the visit. I do have plans for at least 2 or 3 painting of Andrew - its just finding the time...

the more i look at this painting, the more i like it. i like how you left out certain details from the painting...it's like putting your own perspective into the picture. i really really like it.
