   Double!                              oil                               22" x 14"
This is the commission I've been recently working on. Pictured are twin daughters enjoying a day out on the river. This was done from a small work that I first painted as a plan from some photos that were provided to me. I combined those with landscaping and river images that I thought would enhance the figures and work with the composition.
Pin It


  1. And you demonstrate so well the excitement of a "Double". Nice, nice.

  2. When I enlarged this I could see the wonderful movement and linkage you achieved. Twins? - it could not have been easy having two focal areas but you pulled it off great.

  3. Beautiful...! I am certain they will love this

  4. I'd like to see the photos that you used. I'm intrigued by the idea of taking images and moods from different photos to create a painting. I think that's the more artistic approach, rather than drawing from just one photo. This is a wonderful painting, you created the sense of flowing water and movement in the girls. Very nicely done!

  5. Excellent work, Mary..Amazing brush work and color..

  6. I love the movements in your painting Mary! This one's full of life and brightness.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
