Portrait of Wendy


27x35 cm / oil on canvas


kpauli has some of the best pictures on flickr. I took one of these pictures and tried to paint a portrait out of it. Hope I'll make it better next time around.

Kirsten, thank you very much for your reply. It is very pleasing to know Wendy liked my portrait; she’s quite an artist herself.

Hi Meryl, thank you, it’s an honor for me to paint your granddaughter, her photos are absolutely captivating. The portrait is $70 shipping included. Also, I must give it a second hand of paint for it was not my immediate intention of selling it and there are some aspects of the painting I would like to improve before passing it on to you. My email is gilsonbsantos@hotmail.com, contact me if there is interest.

me jogando nos olhos deste desenho,
que nem sei se "é" rosto, imagino a certeza de um percurso e fantasio a incerteza de um vislumbre...
Eu vejo pelos teus olhos, oh lindo retrato.
Eu seria assim diagonal, oh lindo retrato. Por um quase sorriso assim tão abstrato, e para sempre capturado.
