I recently presented Kelly Money with a finished portrait in oil paint on prepared wood panel.
David Money of Doylestown commissioned me to paint an oil portrait of Kelly. The work was a collaborative effort. David photographed Kelly in my studio under controlled lighting. I then picked which photo to paint from that would capture the unique warmth and charisma we all wished to portray in the final painting.
I'm excited to put the finishing touches to this. I know Kelly and her family through the local art scene. It is always more fun painting someone you know.
