Rosalie is a portrait of one of my dearest friends. Initially I had asked Rose and her daughter Karlen to be my models for a two person portrait, but after taking many pictures of them and being quite happy with a number of them, I came across the one of Rose looking off to the side. I knew that this painting had to be painted. I am still planning on painting Rose and Karlen together, but somethings a photo grabs me and I can't let it go until I have painted it.
Rose is one of the most beautiful people I know, not just on the outside, but also on the inside. She is gracious and warm, kind, insightful and understanding. She is a very generous person with a wonderful sense of humor. She has two great kids and a wonderful husband and I feel very thankful she is part of my life and also very thankful that she trusted me enough to capture her on canvas.
