Marcia & Harry, further progress on a dual mini-portrait

"Marcia and Harry" miniature portrait in progress, 3 7/8" x 3"

Still a bit of work to go, but here is the dual miniature portrait of my Mom and Harry after some more progress. They are standing by the picture windows of a beautiful NYC restaurant called Asiate, which sits atop the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park. The three of us had a lovely meal at Asiate to celebrate their honeymoon in New York in April 2008.

Marcia and Harry

"Marcia and Harry" in progress, egg tempera on gessoed panel, 3 7/8" x 3 1/2"

Well, surprise! After mulling it over, I just couldn't resist trying a portrait of this couple! So here is the start of my dual portrait, in progress, of my Mom and step-Dad, Marcia and Harry. They were on their honeymoon when the reference picture for this portrait was taken, and the background once filled in will indicate where they are standing (in a very special spot!)
