progress on "The Piano Recital, It's Mary's Turn"


"The Piano Recital, Mary's Turn" (in progress), (click on the image to see it at it's actual size) 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", egg tempera on gessoed panel

I'm busily preparing for two miniature shows, so it's just occasional updates for right now. Here's an update on my progress with the portrait of Mary at the piano recital. I've really been enjoying working on this one!

I love this painting Mona. I remember sitting and watching her play and you're capturing her beauty with every stroke.
