Love, Devotion, Bhakti

Just finished a new painting, for a very dear friend. And noticed again how strange that it is much more difficult to paint the (half) portrait of someone I see every day versa someone I have seen only once or twice. Perhaps I should pay more attention 🙂

The rest was so much fun, and if you like your portrait done like this with a tree full of the things you love or a befitting poem, let me know. I would enjoy to paint you one as well.
