11x14 oil on canvas
Beverly Gurganus

I took photos of my daughter over 5 years ago before she left for her first formal.  There was one that I fell in love with and knew one day I would paint it.   That day has come!
The original photo was taken outside with lots of landscaping in the background, but I chose to eliminate the background in order to create a quietness in the painting.
