“Nearly 15 but still takes time to pose for her old granddad.”
Our granddaughter, Linda Nicole, has over the years been the model for eight paintings. She is a lovely girl, inside and out, and a natural model. Here, you can see her in a collage of seven works which appear at different places on this site. I think she was about 3 when I first painted her in the window of a mud hut; she is now nearly 15 but still takes time to pose for her old granddad.
Linda Nicole, now 20, having just emerged from the pool to pose underneath a sprig of frangipani, or as they are known in the Islands, plumeria. The flowers came from a separate photo.
I don’t think it is possible to take a bad photograph of Linda, but some turn out more dramatic than others. I recently shot one of her squinting into the sun. Get more information about . I based this painting on that photograph, adding only the top of a wooden fence in the foreground. Pretty dramatic, no?
