Sherie's Mom, Portrait oil on canvas by Linda McCoy

Sherie won a portrait in a contest hosted by Faboverfifty. http://www.faboverfifty.com/

 Sherie's words about her mom:

"I really think that is what I would appreciate the most! I just think it would be nice to give to my kids as well as my mom! My mother will be 82 this coming March. She is a strong woman who is taking care of my sister who has Parkinson’s. She also took care of me when my lupus and fibromyalgia was roaring full blast. She is a very giving and loving woman…!!"

It was a pleasure to paint this portrait for Sherie!
