father and son portrait in progress


egg tempera portrait in progress, approximate size 17" x 15"

Although this is not an official part of my spiritual portrait series, another portrait I'm also currently working on is this one of a father with his first son. The subjects in this instance prefer to remain anonymous, and at this point, the initial layer of the grass is just blocked in, with more work to do on both the figures and background.

Wow Mona!

Their skin is so smooth. Like porcelain!

I love seeing your other work outside of the spiritual paintings!

Thanks for showing us this!

Beautiful Mona! You are definitely one of the best portrait artists in the world today. Your work is spot on professional, and total eye candy.

Deb, I"m overwhelmed by your words, you are very kind to pay me such a high compliment, and it lifts me up at a time when I have been feeling discouraged. Thank you so much.
