Shawna's Aunt and Uncle

Title: Shawna's Aunt and Uncle
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Size: 9x12
Inspiration: Over two years ago my friend Shawna asked me to do a portrait of her Aunt who has breast cancer.  I have been really afraid to work on/ finish this painting.  I was really intimidated so I brought it to an art class I signed up for so the instructor could give me some pointers and help me finish.  And that she did.  Lynn Gertenbach is amazing.  You should check out her work if you have time.  
It feels really good to be done with this.  I cant wait to show it to Shawna then varnish it and give it too her.    
Too see some in progress of this piece check out here and here.
