The Kiss - 7" x 11 " Pastel

A perfect Valentine's Day subject: my parents, circa 1948. As you might be able to tell, I worked from a B&W photo. They eloped shortly after this picture, and nine months later, my big brother was born. Happy Valentine's Day:)

That's amore! Nice work...you really feel that kiss cemented everything.
Like the lighter pastels, reflecting the older picture. Nina

This is beautiful - it's like watching a great hollywood classic movie, Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, etc. You've really capture the "feeling". Have a wonderful day.

Look how far behind I am on commenting. Rhonda, your color choices are great and what a story this tells. Very nice!
