Muddy's portrait

We've had this blank spot on our magenta wall behind the register just screaming for something to go there, and now that space is filled with a gorgeous portrait of my grandmother, Muddy.

The painting was done from the black and white photograph that most of you have seen in the shop of her as a young woman and the artist did a wonderful job providing color, texture, and basically, bringing Muddy to life on canvas.

My thanks to Clare Torina, the excellent artist, for painting this and for doing such a wonderful job. Clare was a dream to work with and is so gifted. If you're interested in having a portrait painted, I highly recommend her and have her business cards at the shop. You can also check out her website here.
