Mamina

Trying to get back into 'blogging mode' I'd like to post a portrait I did some while ago. Since I was not actively blogging at that time it might still considered 'new'...

This is a portrait of my grandmother I did from an old b/w photograph, taken some 40 years ago. It means a lot to me.

I've just started another portrait, probably using oil colours again. While acrylics is 'my first love', I want to get more proficient with oils as well. I do have to agree that the finish and soft sheen of oil is beautiful....

Beautiful painting! I also called my grandmother "Mamina" I have often wondered what the name means. If you know, please let me know.
