Oil On Canvas : 97

Love this painting by Craftster member UnRuli .
"Oil on Canvas of my husband's 97 year old grandmother"

There's an authenticity beyond the literal execution. There's something about the look on the woman's face, the position of her hands, and the way she sits in the chair that makes me feel as if I have been in this very room with this very woman. Normally, I'm a fan of conceptual work or that which twists and nudges at conventional forms and materials, but I'm reminded that the best work is sometimes more about capturing moments as it is about commenting on those moments.
