1941: Mom and Dad During Navy Years in War

OK, now it is sketched out.

Painting this portrait of my mother taken from a picture in the early 1940's has been slow work. It was started a year ago, and progess has stalled on it. Perhaps memories of an acrimonious divorce between my parents is creating hesitation on further painting, but I just can't get the impetus to finish it. By posting on this blog, maybe inspiration will come.

Don't they look happy? I especially like the Navy cap in the upper right corner of the original picture. That needs to be added into the canvas.

Dad was stationed in New York as an airplane test pilot when the top snapshot was taken.
