Something a little different for fun…

Personal token of affection, a portrait miniature painting in an enameled pin brooch frame.

This week I decided to take a break, step away from the paintings on the easel, and do something for myself. This is a portrait miniature representative of traditional late eighteenth century style. It is watercolor on ivory (old piano key) with a sealing varnish of DaMar. The painting style does not model strictly after that taught at the Philadelphia academy but is vaguely reminiscent of regional influences. Of course the smiling countenance is purely this artist’s prerogative. The subject is my husband. Enjoy.
