My wife in 1983

My wife in 1983

When I was courting my wife back in '83, I did this portrait of her in hopes of convincing her of the depth of my feelings.

I thought her father would appreciate how well I crafted the portrait, but I think he saw right through to my true intentions. But hey, I did end up marrying her! So my intentions were honorable :-)

And the best part is she still looks like this portrait. Lucky me.

Gorgeous portrait -- she's beautiful!

How glamorous! Very carefully modulated tones. You'd do it so differently now, wouldn't you? It's really fun to see your old work.

Hey Laura. Yes, you're right. I would do it very differently now. Back then I 'smudged' all the time. Always trying to smooth out the transitions. I don't do that anymore.

She's lovely--and she looks very confident.
