Oil Pastels: Terry



This is an abstract oil pastel painting of Terry.

Terry was an old girlfriend of one of my brothers  from the 70’s whom he dated for a very long time. They eventually married, but it didn’t last very long. She is now only a memory.

    I guess she’d be a bit older now. I wonder what your brother would say!

    • Yes, she if about 54 years old now. He’d now has a painting to cherish her beauty if he decides he wants it. Meanwhile, I’ll keep it safe right here with me.
      Thank you for the comment, Binky!


  2. Sad when relationships fail – I’ve lost several girlfriends, but we always stayed friends…

    Love and hugs!


  3. Sorry it didn’t work out.It’s amazing you still remember her.Is she close to you?
    Judging from the abstract, she looks like a beautiful woman

    • Nope, I haven’t seen her since in over 37 years, back when I was only…never mind. I still remember her well though. She was the pretties and nicest of all his girlfriends….the prettiest too.
      Thanks for commenting, Novroz!

  4. hi there Deb, such a great abstract of an attractive woman. What amazes me is how so many relationships fail once the marriage knot is tied… So many people I know who lived quite happily as ‘partners’ finally decided to marry and then regretted it… I wonder what’s so ‘heavy’ about that piece of paper which says you are tied, as one? …. A good portrait from your memory banks my friend. xPenx

    • I don’t know really…maybe their expectation change once married, but I think you are right. It seems to be that piece of paper for some that breaks up so many.
      Thank you for the comment on that abstract of her. I still remember her face like I saw it yesterday.

      Thank you too for coming in today…it’s always a pleasure to have a visit from you.

  5. Did you create this entirely from memory, Ms. A?!
    That’s very impressive! If I can’t see a subject, there is NO WAY I can render it.
    Beautifully done!

    • Yes, from memory. It was a struggle though, but most enjoyable. I know I captured her, in an abstract sort of way.
      Thank you for the lovely comment, Bob!


      • I even have to copy my comic characters from previous comics till I have drawn them quite a lot of times. You did a fantastic job to do this portrait of Terry from memory after so many years. I have created some new characters for members of Wally & Sam’s families that I haven’t published yet except on my “The Cast” page for “The Krittles”. I’ve done quite a number of comics with their wives & kids that are in draft but I still have to look back each time I draw them. A photographic memory would be great.

      • It is a rare case when I can draw from memory. It is not too often that a vision of someones face appears clear in my minds eye. This was one of those times. I guess maybe because I was thinking of her so much that day.

    She has a look of Cher 🙂

  7. I like this panting, she has a beautiful smile.

  8. Long courtships are over rated. I knew my wife for three months before we were married…over 40 years ago. You do such great work. I am glad I found your page.

    • That long courtship might be where they went wrong. To much hmm, hawing around.
      Thank you for the comment on my work! I’m glad you found my site too, or I would be missing out on some really good comics, Bo!
