Working on portrait

I haven't posted any new pics for a little while. I am working on a portrait commission I will hopefully post soon. I am working from a photo that was taken in the early 40's of a couple that at 17 ran away and got married. I have been commissioned by their son to do a painting of their wedding photo. I was told the family was not happy about them running off at such an early age to get married, but it all worked out well. They have had a very interesting life. They are 84 years old now and still married to this day. I guess you could say, it all worked out very well!! I will tell you more when I post the portrait.

Wow...a great story. Look forward to seeing the work as I am sure you will include that special love in the painting.
