24 x 36 Inches Oil on deep wrapped canvasIf you notice, the model has a GIGANTIC PILLOW on her lap, that she was suggested to use in order to raise her hands up..(this was from the right side of the room unbeknownst to me... so figuring a big pillow on her lap should be substituted for her holding something else...I figured what better to hold than my grandson? So I couldn't not swap out the look of model's features for Sabra! But this was the first attempt... the baby's head too small... so the last version baby is bigger and is lower, mom with longer neck as well.. Ran out of time.
But here we have 2 great examples of why the LARGE pillow was needed... very nice paintings by Jerry and James (both instructors at Scottsdale Artists School)
