Still Brother and Sister


    
     There is a quietness about this painting that I think reflects the personalities of the featured siblings.  They were such a peaceful duo, and when I was painting this commission, I feel like I infused their stillness into the sky and sea and even the sand around them. My brushwork is subtle and the colors, subdued. It amazes me how many elements can be incorporated, beyond likeness, into a painting to create a true portrait.
