Small Paintings Inspired by Old Family Photographs
These three small images, painted on 5 x 4 inch canvas, were inspired by family photographs of my mom and dad. They started off as gray-scale value studies painted in shades of black and white.
Mom and Dad, as a young married couple.. My father in his military uniform and my mother expecting her first child - my brother.
This painting is from a photograph of my mom, taken in the early 1960's. My father was out to sea and mom was busy raising two babies (my brother and me) - and may have been pregnant with my sister. Mom had just gotten her long hair cut into a much more manageable short hair style.
