Fran, I just love this painting of Jesse. Not only does it look just like him but you've caught his personality, (gentle nature ever hopeful). Every time I look at the painting I smile. I am so thankful you chose him as a subject. I guess I can claim that I have the one original in my living room and the other original snuggled under blankets in the bedroom.
Your work is beautiful and I so enjoy this website..
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to paint Jessie and I am sure to paint him again in the future.
