Newly Completed Works

I've just completed these portraits of two very dear friends and their husbands. These were done for them because of their generosity. It was supposed to be a surprise, but quickly realized that I could not proceed without their input. In the first portrait, her husband passed away a few years ago, so it was very important to me that I catch his likeness and essence. I just hope and pray they love it...just wish I could've gotten better photos.





Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) Barbara and Sandra for your generosity and loving friendship.

P.S. Forgot to mention that they are sisters. Their relationship makes me wish I was closer, geographically, to my sisters.
