My Mother

In honor of Mother’s Day, I decided to post this picture of her. I painted her when I was a senior in high school. It’s a little wonky, but it’s pretty dang close to what she looks like. I am incredibly proud of how this turned out.


I painted this picture in my senior year of high school for my drawing and painting class. This is my grandparent’s dog, Marley. I outlined the shape of the dog and the background and mixed paint to color it. The background isn’t very great because I didn’t think I could detail it as it was, so I simplified it. The shape¬†of the dog isn’t perfect either, but for my first attempt at painting something in a long while, I’m pretty proud of it. So were my grandparents, they even had it framed.
