vintage black and white photograph was used as
reference for the posthumous painting, Forever in my
Heart. The 1960s photo was provided by my client,
Becky, the little girl sitting at her mother's knee.
The challenge was to create an appropriate and
harmonious color palette, and make several changes in
painting shows my mom's loving arms wrapped around
me, as she is looking at me so sweetly. It looks so real!
I stand in front of it and am in awe. The painting fills
me with wonderful, warm memories. Thank you, Jean-Marie."
