Trisha Mona Lisa


Oil on canvas.    This portrait of a beautiful young lady, now my nephew's wife,  is a beautiful painting with a nice pose done while she posed for my art group one session.  I had already had the thought she looked like the Mona Lisa when somebody else said it - in particular the way the light created very soft shadows around her rounded cheekbones and forehead, reminding us of DaVinci's style.  I did not well capture that look - it did not capture in my photos, and will try again before I call this painting done.  Trisha has the most amazing hair, I think I did capture that well here.
