6" x 6"
Oil on Canvas Panel
Amber L Bailey

I have been meaning to paint my mother for a long time, and I figure with Mothers Day just a few days away, it's the perfect time to do it. I dragged her outside Sunday afternoon and took a picture of reluctant as she was to be painted, haha. I love how the light turned out in this painting. As usual, I can't get the picture to do the painting justice, I need a professional! Anyway, this one I call "Mama." Happy Mothers Day.


  1. Just beautiful...what a lucky Mom to have such a sweet daughter!!! Your are just amazing.

  2. Thanks Linda, that's so nice of you to say that :)

  3. Wow, to be able to give such a gift. What a lucky mom you have.

    I must say the 6x6 format really seems to work for you. I am loving these portraits!

  4. This is such an interesting project. You've done such nice work here. I particularly like "Mama", it's very warm and inviting.

  5. I really like this painting of your mother. Good job girl :). Happy Mothers day to Mom :).
