“Chiara” This is a portrait of Chiara painted from an iPhone snapshot I took in June of 2014. Ben and Kristi Miles were visiting us in Santa Cruz and I was looking for the moment when I could capture Chiara’s sweet yet impish character. It’s oil painted on canvas. I finished it in January and delivered on July 2017
“Janis” oil on canvas
“Odin” completed July 2014. This is a 20″by 24″ oil painting on canvas. I took many photos of him at his home. After an hour of running through his yard he took a rest in the grass. I felt like this expression best showed his personality. He is such a bright and gorgeous child.
