Head Study - Wen LaBarre-Borowicz

Head Study
2005, oil on masonite, 8" x 10". This is actually a portrait of my wife Wen. She was 6 months pregnant at the time and now says it looks nothing like her. This approach to portraiture is a bit invasive but hopefully some honesty and integrity come through. An older Italian woman came into the gallery a few months back and noticed it. Without any knowledge of the subject she informed me that the woman in the painting was pregnant. She said this with complete confidence and I was very happy.
