Painting - Digital Painting
This is a portrait of my grandmother, Eleanor. I used a photo from her 95th birthday party as reference. She passed at the age of 99, and this painting helps keep her loving eyes alive for me.
Her abundance of love and thoughtfulness has been an inspiration in my life. I added the large gold heart necklace as a tribute to her love and generosity, she spent her whole life giving to her family and asked nothing in return for herself.
I've painted many portraits over the years, but staring into my grandma's eyes for hours while painting this one, has bonded me to this painting more than any other.
