On the Cusp
I started this painting 11 years ago...This painting is of my granddaughter, Jennifer, at my nieces wedding. She was 12 years old - not yet an adult and not a child...that in-between time that is so difficult...thus the title "On The Cusp!" She was sitting on the edge of the stage watching the guests dancing - probably bored out of her mind. Today she is beginning her last year in a Physician's Assistant program and is 23 years old...also quite the beautiful young woman now!...no longer watching at weddings.
I never finished the painting - until this week - as I mentioned in a previous blog, I am trying to finish old paintings. This work is 15" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.
