Rebecca and Spencer

Rebecca and Spencer

18" x 24"
Oil on hardwood Panel

Spencer has very strong facial features and it was fun to paint his portrait for the first time. Rebecca's features and beautiful hair I have worked with previously.

And I felt that Spencer's tie and shirt worked well. Although the shirt in the painting is a bit more subtle than the photograph, the photograph is too intense.

I have done the back ground several times and I'm still not fully satisfied, I may yet change it to a solid medium grey.


  1. Thanks dad! I look great- I'm glad you picked a picture with my hair done! haha. I'm not an artist but I think the background looks very nice. Love you.
