Macaroon

This is Macaroon...and one of my favorite portraits I have ever painted! I love the background (kinda hard to see in the picture) it is gold leaf with pearlescent oyster on top- so it just glows....wow! "Mac" is a companion to a wonderful generous woman in NYC that commissioned a portrait last May when I was visiting there. Turned out I took an art course at The School Of Visual Art in NY and this great woman let me stay in her apartment for two weeks while I attended class! I will be forever grateful to this client and for my time in NY! "Mac" was a great companion to stay with while I was there!
