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.

“Deidre”

I’ve changed my mind. I will be showing a new painting at Hess. This is a painting of my son’s new piano teacher. She is absolutely stunning, a cancer survivor and so very talented. I felt she embodied the theme of the show, “Empower”. So, here’s the new detail, sneak peak. “Deidre” is 16″x20″ Acrylic on linen (this was my first painting on linen. It was really nice to work on, but very difficult to photograph.) I can’t show you the whole thing until after the opening night. Come to the show!

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″
