6 x 6
oil on Ampersand

There are so many things to say about my friend Beth.  I painted her and posted it here once before and noted at that time how absolutely photo resistant she is.  She's incredibly slippery and is brilliant at avoiding the camera, something we have in common.  It's a miracle that I had this nice straight on picture to work with since she's usually captured as a blur.  

A month or two ago I posted a little portrait of Beth's husband Roger and she, like him, is a person with a philanthropist's heart.  So much so in fact, that I choose them both to represent an "everyday star" in Ft.Wayne's Murosity Project ( Murosity = Mural + Generosity by highlighting a person or persons who give their time and talents to contribute to the betterment of this community ).  Click here for the website and mural. Hint : My panel is 6th from the left on the second row.  And here is my panel illustrating Beth among some of the critterdom she so loves.

The panels were prepped with the subtle image of the overall painting of the mural, and the task of each artist was to create their painting within the constraints of that image.  
I painted Beth this time just for Scott and me and will join the others on my wall of peeps we love.

  1. Terri, I love the colors used in Beth's portrait. Her eyes absolutely sparkle! I visited the "Murosity" site... what a cool idea! To see how all the pieces fit together is amazing. Congratulations on your work. Also, I like the new look on your blog.
