Oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas (24"x24"x2") 1/1/2011
"I couldn't leave that frown on Louise's face. How could I do that to her?! Now I'll feel better about giving the painting to her for her birthday, which is today.
Last night, while at Louise's for dinner and after everyone had viewed the portrait on yesterday's post, her son, Ben, came up with the perfect name for the frowning portrait "It's The Mona Louisa".
Below is a photo of the painting while on the easel."
