More Portraits

This is a portrait I posted in this blog several years ago. This is a commissioned piece done from an old black & white photograph taken in the late 1940's/early 1950's. I love working from old photos. I feel the black & white format captures an innocence not always reflected in today's photos. Or maybe it was just the times back then when life moved a bit slower and your neighborhood or small town was your whole world.
