Barbara and Reid



My sister, Barbara became a young widow at age twenty-nine. She had two children she had to raise by herself. After many years, she married a widower named Reid. They had a delightful time together. She felt the love and fulfillment she had missed for so long. After about thirteen years, Reid suddenly passed away. The day he died, I started painting this portrait. I hope it gives my sister some comfort and some wonderful memories of the past.

I think this is a great picture of a happy couple. Reid was a very fine person whom I felt very close to. He loved and took good care of Barbara.

It is even more impressive to see the actual painting. Thank you for capturing Barb’s expression in your fine portraiture.
