"Eddie"

"Eddie"
Beverly Gurganus
16x20 Oil on Canvas
I wanted to give up my security of the grid and try this portrait freehand. The likeness is still a little off, but I feel that the figure is recognizable to those who knew him. With practice, I know that this will get easier...just hope it doesn't take too long :)
As with my latest oil portraits, this was a special piece to work on, and I experienced many emotions during the progression of this piece. Eddie and his family is so very special and has made such a positive impact on my life. I love them dearly and look forward to a heavenly reunion.
