Miss Abigale

Sorry for the absence. I had my first camping trip of the year this weekend on beautiful Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay. I had a wonderful relaxing time but now it is time to get back to work...Here is what I've been working on.

This is one of the first illustrations from my "Ladies & Gents" series: Her name is Miss Abigale.  She has such a story of loss to tell. Her husband and young daughter were lost at sea. She waited years for them to return. But it never happened. She doesn't want to move on but she must. She is so lonely...Now it is time for her to look for love once again.

I have more of these Victorian Portraits in the works and I'll post them soon and tell you all about my ideas for this series.

I hope you like her.

Debra, I love Miss Abigale! I want to hear the whole story of how she lost her husband and daughter at sea. She looks so sand and somber. Hope to be able to see/read more soon!

Thanks Eliana! I'll be painting a few more today.I really love coming up with the stories too. Some might turn out pretty damn sinister...BRAHAAHAA

Miss Abigale reminds me of a portrait of my great-great-aunt (or perhaps great-great-grandmother) which used to hang across from my work station. I removed it because it was creeping me out.
