100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Marie, 73/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art


Day 73

The person who submitted this photo asked that I paint Marie very colorfully. That I did. I proclaimed that I would never do another really senior person after all the trouble I had painting my 92 year old Aunt Trude (39/100). I guess I learned a thing or two on that portrait because this one seemed to work a little easier. I especially loved painting her hat.
For purchase information, please see my website.

Exciting news: I have created an account with Fine Art America. Now you can order prints of paintings I have already done. FAA is a really cool site that gives YOU control over how you want your print to look - on stretched canvas, matted and framed, or rolled in a tube. You can also order photo note cards. So far I have only uploaded portraits 1-50. More will be posted soon.

Did you buy a portrait and wish you had two so you could share it with someone? The prints might be the way to go. Want some VERY personalized note cards? The prints would make excellent gifts. Click on the Fine Art America widget on the sidebar to the right.

You have done a wonderful painting of my Grandmother, AGE 94. My daughter-in-law took the picture the last time we visited her at the nursing home. Words can not describe how it made me feel seeing it. It brought wonderful warm feeling back that I thought I had lost when seeing the emptiness that her dementia had caused. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

Thank you all for your comments. It warms my heart to get a message like (anonymous) sent. I hope you will enjoy the painting and the loving feelings you have for your grandmother.

OMG! I came on here to tell you how it touched my MIL when I showed this to her last night, Carol! You didn't know this, but this WAS the last time we saw Grama as she passed away earlier this month. This will be a fought-after family treasure. THANK YOU! YOU ROCK and I can hardly wait to meet you once we move out your way!

Carol. I think this might be your best yet! What a wonderful study of an older person. Colorful yet subdued. I think this woman is going to love this portrait of herself! My compliments to you as a painter! Jill.

Colorful for sure! So much character to her face!

And you're nailing those reflections from the glasses beautifully, Carol!
