A Portrait of Greta - oil painting
This is Greta. I was asked by her owner to paint her portrait. This was my first commission and I admit that doing a custom painting puts a new dynamic on the painting process. Will she like it? Is it what she was expecting? etc. But as I painted I just kept thinking of the loving words her owner used to describe Greta and let that coax Greta onto the canvas. It was the first time I consciously approached a painting from that direction and it worked. Her owner loved the painting.
