My beautiful daughter-in-law posed for us when Susan Mauck stepped in for Jerry's oil painting class. She taught us her portrait painting techniques, and after one week of dismal results, I was able to paint this the second week. Although not a very good likeness of Shannon, I'm please with the painting overall, and really excited to practise my new portrait painting skills!


  1. Hi Karen, nice to see you back on line. Portraits are challenging and I think your's is very good. Did your daughter-in-law like the picture?
    I'd love to come visit you at your studio. Let me know when would be a good time.

  2. Good start only gets better.
