Lost in Thought

oil on board 8"x6"

A certain brother of mine once told me that he is bothered by the way I often paint people looking away from me. He'd rather see a portrait of someone looking right back at me/the viewer. Well, I'm a sucker for the contemplative, introspective moment, and I always will be. 

This is a portrait of my niece Raven, who is normally lively and extroverted- and a gymnast. 


  1. Beautiful and thoughtful. I love tour palette.

  2. This painting really draws you in. Superb!!

  3. Taryn, I always feel so honored when you draw one of my guys. I love when Raven is real....not posing. you are sneaky with the camera. I love it.
