My Original Subjects!

My latest portrait involves a particularly special couple. Not only are they my brother and sister-in-law, they are the subjects of my very first portrait. As seen to the left, my amazing artistic skill and phenomenal photography talents were still developing. I've slightly improved since then. At the time I was so proud of myself and of the painting that I submitted it into an art exhibit and later gave it to the couple as a gift.

I've been working on this latest portrait since May 2006, and my dad was critiquing it for me through its progression. Since he was no longer around, I've literally avoided doing any work on it, and focused on other clients. I finally reached a point where it became necessary to complete it. I think even my dad would be satisfied with the results.

Jenni and Ulysses, professional wedding photographers in New York, celebrated their wedding anniversary this month. I thought the timing was great for the unveiling. Happy 18th!!
