Juliette

Juliette by David R. Darrow 8" x 10" Oil on Belgian Linen Portrait Commission, not for sale.

This is a recent portrait commission I did for a local woman I met at an art fair in Rancho Santa Fe, CA last June. The subject, Juliette, is her daughter. She and her husband wanted something of value they could enjoy now, but also hand down to their daughter when she is older.

(They loved it!)

Juliette was a pleasure to paint. She has a lively, sweet spirit, and a calm in her eyes that speaks of a heart at rest.
