Bobbie

Faded and soft, like a memory.

A commissioned portrait from a faded black and white snapshot. A sunny day at the beach sometime in the early 1950’s.

I translated a black and white photo into a color portrait – bringing the soft colors of the bathing suit and towel back to life and adding the blush to her skin, flushed from the warmth of the summer sun.

As I painted, I wondered if she ever realized how beautiful she was. We rarely see ourselves as we are, as beautiful as we appear to the ones who love us.

The person who snapped this photo must have loved her very much.
