In keeping with my goals to finish 3 more paintings (since the beginning of November) for Christmas for those clients who have been waiting just over a year now, this is my second one to finish. Or so, I'm at that point where I'm going to consider it so. I've been looking at it for quite a while, studying it, etc. and today I finally put the last touches on it--mainly the shadowed area of the porch on the right. It is distorted, yes. That's my style in house portraits--they look happy and musical as though dancing. I hope my client likes it. This is a beautiful home in Birmingham, Alabama.
