This is a trio of portraits for my childhood friend, Giorgiana. I've known Giorgi and her mom Nutzi since I was a young kid. But I have yet to meet Giorgi's daughter, Yasmin. Hopefully one day soon.
And although years have past, and we’ve been living in different countries for close to 30 years, it’s nice to reconnect thanks to the awesome technology of social media.
Nutzi, Giorgi and Yasmin: three generations of beautiful women.
Giorgi's finished portrait.
She was wearing the most fun outfit for a garden party, with silver glittery sneakers and a tshirt with a print of the shoes. I love the mix of the lady-like skirt in the fun bright fuchsia with a playful tshirt and sporty shoes! Super cute!
I'm applying a bit of Martha Stewart magic, silver glitter, to her portrait.
After shaking off the excess glitter.
The beginning of Giorgi's portrait, during picnic at the park. Gotta love LA weather, it's always picnic ready!
Nutzi's finished portrait.
In progress, in Ella Studio.
Adding the finishing Martha Stewart touches to Nutzi's gold necklace.
Yasmin's portrait, a beautiful young lady.
Ella Studio action shots.
My Ella Studio's got me covered: cup holders aka brush holders, small water container in the second cup holder (under the painting), color palette and my messenger bag with my portable painting supplies. I'm all set! I could paint anywhere!
Yasmin gets the gold Martha Stewart bling treatment, too. But all the glitter action happens at home, in my actual studio - as much as I love glitter and don't mind it all over the house, I draw the line at my Ella ;-)
