painted portrait of the Miharas

Gwenn Seemel
The Miharas
2013
acrylic on canvas
30 x 30 inches

This is my first ever family portrait. I’ve painted siblings in separate but matched compositions before, like here and here for example, and I’ve made a number of double portraits—this one being one of my favorites. But these four lovely people plus dog are different because all five of them inhabit one composition all together.
