The Shell Seekers

This is an oil study that I did today of a Father and his daughter . They are part of a commission of a family portrait that I am starting this week. I am trying to familiarize myself with the subjects a bit before I start putting the whole family together. They are on a beach in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. I let them be as natural as possible and I like the way that turned out. It allowed me the chance to observe their personalities and how they interact with one another. Such a sweet family... I am enjoying every stage of this commission.

  1. This is so warm and personal. I can feel the warmth of the sun on my arms and face. I cannot wait to see the final painting that you are doing for this family. What a wonderful thing for them to have. Your work captures moments in time so they will never be forgotten.
