Ester



















24x26 oil on canvas.  This was my friend Ester, who passed away a few years ago.  I have been working on this painting on and off for the past year.  I'm finally close to completion and thought I would post the painting to share with you all.

Ester was such a sweet woman - I used to visit her twice a week.  She never left her home but always had the door open for any company that wanted to stop by.  She lived alone - a widow of 45 years! She was fiercely independent, a staunch Democrat and proud of her Tyrolean heritage!  I absolutely adored her!

Please email me with any comments or questions.  Thanks for looking!
