This is a portrait of Mike and Heidi. I wanted to paint them because in my mind, they were the perfect couple. They love each other a lot and you can tell it whenever you’re around them. They have a beautiful family of little girls. Everyone they know feels so good to be around them because they treat others so nice.
I have positioned them so there is light and shadow on their faces. You can see their facial structure, There is volume. Heidi is wearing a white shirt. It is very simple in color, yet look at the different reflections it picks up – the red from his tie, the color of her skin. Her light hair makes a beautiful contrast to the background behind her. His dark suit and hair are another beautiful contrast. I really love this painting.
