I went through my parent’s photo collection and painted a number of family portraits, the two below being the last ones. I was drawn to the light in the images and the expressions. I like that people were relaxed. Looking through family photos allowed me to see interesting moments and a lot of moments that I did not remember or had not experienced.
I think I’m at the end of my portrait spree for now and the use of my parent’s photo collection. I will have to see where inspiration takes me next.
I started this series of a friend training horses maybe a month or two ago. So far I have the location and some of the preparation, the ride, and the clean up. It was fun to follow her around and see her ride at such a high level. The location was beautiful too. One of the perks of Maryland is all the beautiful horse farms.
