Portrait of Ruth & Hank Margules

Eric Margules commissioned me to paint this portrait of his parents as a birthday gift for his father. When his parents came to visit my studio, the couple comfortably assumed this pose as they sat in my chairs. Their bodies formed an elegant shape with their legs leisurely crossed and hands positioned naturally. Their silhouette inspired me to create their portrait with a white background and light outline of the chairs.
