The Human Oil Painting Copy Machine…

Please share...

I’m finding some interesting archives in my retirement! A friend asked me some years ago to paint oil reproductions of two paintings he had of his relatives from the 1800’s. He wanted to give them as gifts to his brother and sister. I said OK and studied the originals and how they were originally painted. It took quite a while, but when I finished the paintings, he walked in the room to see them and from a few feet away, he still couldn’t pick out the originals (I took the original frames off when I showed them)! It took a look at the aged canvas to give away the copies. Quite a fun and challenging project…and please no comments about the skinny legs! : )Oil Painting Copies
