Jenny

My wonderful friend Jenny offered to model for me. She is a smart, funny, unique and insightful art lover. I loved doing this portrait of her.

Catching up

I did a small series of profiles in acrylic and watercolor over the last few months of 2017. I love the unique individual profiles of people and how much you can glean from the side of a face. I’ll be working more with profiles of 2018. Please feel free to contact me if you’d like your portrait done, profile or otherwise. I’d love to work with you. IMG_9436Copyright 2018 Wendy Kwasny All rights reserved.

Miles, Contemplative

IMG_3440February was a month of portraits. This is a portrait of my eleven year old son. I love this age between young adult and child. There’s so much love, innocence and potential all wrapped up in a beautiful face. This is 24″x 30″ acrylic on canvas.

The Christ Window Commission

This is a commission of “The Christ Window” circa 1906. The window is currently housed at First Church, First United Methodist Church in Mission Valley, San Diego CA, and is a favorite of my client. He wanted his wife to be able to see it in their home everyday.  I reproduced it in acrylic paint on canvas. It’s 18″ x 24″
