I was honored to recently be asked to paint a portrait of Pneumo, who went to the bridge not long ago, and who's story many of you here know well. I was fortunate to be given a really fabulous photograph to work from- the sharpest I have ever been sent. It made my job very easy.
Since I can't down size the photo file enough to load it directly here, I must redirect you to my blog, where I have posted it:

Gwen,

I love it. It is a beautiful portrait. I also enjoy reading your blog. It is so interesting how you have a process and how you get these portraits executed.
