Renee


I started this painting of Renee from a live sitting at my studio, last year.
Since I hadn't finished it, I took a snap shot to work from, as Renee said
sitting for a painting was difficult.
Yesterday I worked on it. Although it needs hands and fingers and other
areas to address, I wanted to post it for you.
I will post its progress from time to time.
18"x24" oil on streatched canvas.

Bill, This is a beautiful painting of your dear wife and how blessed you are to be able to finish it. This will mean so much for your children too. Hopefully, you are letting your family and friends help you during this tough time. It seems to help some but it's just blind faith that works in the end. Blessings to you . . Nora

Dad,
This is an amazing painting of mom. It's so beautiful...soothing...almost puts you in a trance gazing at it. I will have to stop by and see it in person too :) Love you!

Thank You Everyone! There are so many things I need to adjust in this, so your support is as from my family & friends at home.(: )

I like it Bill, you are doing a great job, I think it is almost finish, a few details and you will have a beautiful painting and a very nice homenage to your wife.

Oh Bill, I haven't been here in a while and was shocked to read about your wife. My heart aches for you. Please take care of yourself. Hugs. Barb

Bill, I sent an e-mail to you this morning with an article on grief that I have found helpful. I hope it helps you too. . . . . Nora
