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.

New Painting, Ivy Camping

"Ivy Camping" 8"x10" Oil on Canvas

“Ivy Camping” 8″x10″ Oil on Canvas

I finished a quick study of my daughter Ivy last night from a photograph I took while we were camping this winter.  I feel it captures her vivacious spirit and fun personality, not to mention the pure volume that comes with being a 2 year old.  This is a smaller painting, 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas.

Puddle Stomp

This is my most recent painting, “Puddle Stomp”, It’s a painting of my son playing in the rain at Otay Lake, in San Diego.  It was a gorgeous day, with great light.  I worked this painting from a photograph I took on that day.
