Eddie painting #74

     Here's Eddie, our sweet mail carrier, on the day he told me he was retiring.  I ran inside and got my camera for a snapshot I could paint his portrait as a retirement gift.  I still had the photos, so I thought I'd try it again, in my new style.   Actually, I worked on a white ground this time, and just REMOVED the lights !!!!  Pretty fun !


  1. thanks, Linda... I know you love to do portraits, too....they are always fun, but challenging.

  2. A beautiful portrait of a nice guy.He shoud be happy with it!

  3. I like your technique to remove the lights. It's awesome. Is the other portrait posted on your blog too?
