Smiling Irish Eyes

6" by 6" original oil on wrap around canvas with sides painted.

It took me a couple of tries to get going on this portrait.  As some of my readers know, my Mom passed away on August 31st.  She was 88 years old and I really miss her.  She still had her Irish brogue after
over fifty years living here in America and delighted us with so many sayings and stories  from Ireland.  I have been jotting them down as they come to me but I REALLY wish I had done it more when she was alive.  It always seems like there will be more time.  Anyway, I am pleased that I got a likeness and felt after wards that I had been able to spend some time with her and enjoy her smiling eyes once again!
