Geke Smiling

A portrait of my wife Geke who is smiling to the viewer

Oil Painting, 2017


My wife is not easy to persuage to portray for a photo or painting session but at an unguarded moment at a family party we managed to take a picture.

It shows her natural beauty and beautiful smile while sitting on the couch with the garden in the background where we see some vegetation in the first spring colors.

I have tried to combine this natural smile with the beautiful background colors. I used the palette knife in addition to the paintbrushes to make the necessary variations.
