oil on canvas

This was also done quite awhile ago. Same model, my friend Margo. Himself and I had recently become an item. I dropped him off at his friend's place to do the Superbowl while I visited Margo who had agreed to be my model for the day. Technically there's a lot wrong with this painting, but I kinda like it. Her expression seemed so wistful and introspective. I found out later that she'd just found out she was expecting her first child.


  1. I'm glad you're turning around and realizing that everything doesn't have to be perfect in order to still be a thing of beauty and a wonderful memorial to Margo's special day. I love this Suzanne!

  2. Very nice, Suz... What a cool story to go with it. -Don

  3. So beautiful! Her expression is so illusive and genuine. Love the light on her skirt and the way her hands are draped. Exquisite!

  4. I like it too. The figure, the clothes and the leaves behind her.

  5. Suzanne, you are just trying to make us jealous, aren't you?

    I love the blue in her dress, that focused stare, and those lovely green leaves in the background!
