Eyes of the storm

“I photographed her about 6 months ago and used that half in-jest portrait as the basis for the painting.”
– John Haines

I call this one “Isabella Victoria, The Eyes of the Storm”. IV, as we all call her, is Johnny’s and Lucy’s oldest daughter. I photographed her here at our house about 6 months ago and used that half-in-jest portrait as the basis for the painting. Take a look at . The background photo I took a few weeks ago from their sea wall. So, I have put IV in her own back yard just in time for an approachiing storm. This is a very small painting–9×12 inches–but it is very 3-dimensional.
