Ethelwynne Allen Bristol


Date: 2006
Medium: Oil on Masonite
Size: 18 " x 24 "
Merrill Yelenak Collection

This was my first oil painting since art school, 25 years ago. It's a portrait of my wife's grandmother, based on a photograph from 1908.

I was trying to achieve a very traditional feel to this portrait, something that would have fit Ethelwynne's personality.
