Artist Karin Portfolio : Family Folk Art Portrait (Commissioned)
“Family Folk Art Portrait”
I painted this portrait while living on Cape Cod, after a family member came across a photo of an old folk art painting of a family in the 1900’s. She had the idea of replicating the painting, however, replacing the faces in the original; with the faces of herself, her husband, and their 3 children instead. This became an extremely fun project, since I knew all the family members well; & at times I even felt a strange connection to the subjects as I was painting them. (I joke to others about this, saying that there were times while I was working on it, when I felt that the subjects might actually reach out of the canvas, grab my paintbrush; and attempt to make corrections).
