Inspiration From You - Amy and Chloe- April 2009


Amy and Chloe
5"x 7"
acrylic on masonite

This painting of Amy and her daughter Chloe sitting on a terrace in Rome, writing in their travel journals, seemed to be an appropriate subject to paint over Mother's Day weekend. As Amy says about this moment :
"It was morning on the terrace of our small rented room within view of the Pantheon. The room was one flight of stairs up from the street, so we could look down at the activity below, watching Rome wake up in the morning and then wind down at night. Funny, how in a city with so much to see and do, that I felt I could actually spend a lot of time right there on that terrace and be perfectly happy."

I love this. You just placed the precise amount of subtle strokes of color to suggest a cheek and highlight a shoulder. It's beautiful. Makes me want to walk up to this pair and join them.
