Olivia, 9 months


Olivia, 9 months

  • Oil on Ampersand Gessobord (Masonite)
  • 16″ x 12″
  • In a private collection

When I paint a portrait of a child, I not only present their likeness, but offer a window to the world of which they are a part. My work is about symbols and I’m a believer in their power. If the symbols in the painting help to give rise to Liv’s curiosity in life, I’m a happy artist and grandmother. A list of symbols in Liv’s painting are Monarch butterfly, Honeysuckle vine and flowers, ancient sequoia tree, Mount Hood in Oregon, moon, Great Blue Heron, comet, night sky, bison on the distant prairie, harvested pumpkins, koi fish, lotus flowers and leaves, frog, river, crows, morning star (Venus) over a river and it’s valley.
