- In this Portrait Painting "Carolyn
with Possum Hat
and Shepherd's Coat,"
an original oil on panel, I wanted to make portraits of both
my wife Carolyn and myself, since we had just recently married.
I painted Carolyn second in order to be more practiced prior
to starting the artwork, since Carolyn wanted her portrait to
be an accurate record of her at the time. The use of costume
aided in composition and subject matter. It's also worth mentioning
that painting the portrait of one's wife should not be taken
lightly at any point in time. I am no longer Married to Carolyn
and do wish her and hers the very best out of respect for the
good times that we shared during the time that we were married.
