Art: The Coming of Winter by Artist D Loren Champlin

Description

This is a portrait of a mother and child entitled The Coming of Winter.

Materials:

very traditional - oil on portrait linen,

Process:

the linen is hand stretched and primed with gesso in a very traditional fashion. I always use brushes or the ends of brushes.

information about the subject and why chosen:

nobody in particular actually was used as a model in this particular case. It is something I had kept sketching out over and over and screamed to be painted. .Fall in Maine can have brutally bitter winds especially in October and November when the first snows arrive. My son hates the wind and always wants to be carried and sheltered from it was the root of the inspiration for this piece. This was exhibited at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery "Serenade From a Star" Aug 1-26, 2008. And is framed.

Prints Available: Yes
