Great Grandmother Portrait
16″ x 20 “, Oil on Canvas, 2004
by Charles C. Clear III
This Great Grandmother Portrait is an early oil painting of an elderly Italian woman. She has a kind smile. She’s standing outdoors and gently touching the leaves of a Weeping Willow tree. She’s wearing a bright red shirt, and she has a gold Saint Christopher medal around her neck.
It’s a simple portrait, painted with an economy of brush-strokes, and yet it captures both her appearance and her personality.
