Work in Progress: Peaches, Update 12
I think this painting is completed. Added the reflection at the bottom. All the same pastel colors used for the other area of the floor were used here except for the addition of CO 105. I purposely left the background area with less detail than the subject because it supports the main subject. The background adds realism and places Peaches in a specific place she is associated with. I wanted that association to ground her to her home, where she spent her life. That was an important consideration from the beginning. She was not just Peaches but Peaches in her home.

Finishing this painting also leaves me a bit sad. It means one more association slips further into the past. Doing this painting also kept me close to her for the past 3 months. In some ways I will miss that. But, we’ll always have this painting of her nearby and can look at it – and remember her – as often as we want. Heidi is growing by leaps and bounds and is becoming more and more a companion. She is wonderful to have around and her youth and affection is much needed, desired and appreciated.

I have in mind another portrait for my next painting. I’ll discuss that next week.

Absolutely great job Richard, both in the execution of the painting and your post descriptions. You are welcome to look at Charlie and comment or not. Just hope you enjoy it half as much as I have enjoyed watching the development of this Peaches painting.
