Mutt and Jeff

I'm calling this one 'Mutt and Jeff.'  These are my favorite little pewter cups, one slightly warmer than the other.

Pearl Earring

My grandmother, Rosamond Ethel Dietz, was married in 1920.  We are so fortunate to have this wonderful wedding portrait.  I'm going to post a series of my progression with painting her, all young and innocent and beautiful. 

The photograph is very clear, not too many clues of the real colors.  I'm imagining she wore this blue sash.  The gown is tiered.  Love the chapeau!  So Dodie!  This was our name for her.  We loved our Dodie.
