It is hard to believe that my grandson turned 18 years old yesterday and of course, I created a portrait of him for his birthday. Some day he will look back on these portraits and think of me.

"Cousins" Oil Painting by Charlotte Yealey

Oil on gessoed board
My reference photo for this painting was one I took back in 1985 during a family picnic at my sister's home near Glenville. My daughter, Danielle with her older cousin Steve and her younger cousin, Bess. The wooded lot that their house sits on is surrounded by beautiful country farmland. This photo has been on my "have to paint" list for a long time and I am glad I finally took the time to paint it.

Horse Portrait by Charlotte Yealey

Acrylic and Colored Pencil
In my attempt to paint larger, I created this head study of a horse that belongs to a Civil War re-enactor. I enjoyed the new size and had to decide when to stop.
