Nancy had been searching for a picture to put on one of her walls and couldn’t find what she was looking for. She’s a big fan of Kathy Womack and has several of her paintings in her home. I suggested that we take our inspiration from Kathy’s Woman and Wine series and do a portrait of Nancy with that as our theme. I needed to work on my newly acquired Photoshop skills so it was a perfect project.
After doing our shoot in Nancy’s house, I worked on retouching and embellishing our portrait. While I was cropping the picture, I kept coming up with a big red area in the top left part of the image. With a little imagination, I grabbed a couple clips of Kathy Womack’s paintings, pasted them around Nancy’s hat and my problem was solved.
Nancy loved it when she saw it. But I hesitated to publish or print the picture until I had asked permission from the artist herself. Kathy Womack looked at my final image and gave a very gracious approval of my work.
Thank you Kathy and Nancy for making this such a fun project!
