Artist Judith Carducci Pastel Portraiture


Pastel on 30" x 24" Ampersand Pastelbord

Judy comments "When Nathaniel's grandmother, Heloise, and I were 17-year-old high school classmates, her family commissioned me to do a pastel portrait of her, which is now in the possession of her daughter, Ann - Nathaniel's aunt. It was especially poignant for me, therefore, to be commissioned to paint Heloise's handsome grandson, 56 years later. (While he posed, I showed him his grandmother's and my yearbook; there we were in 1952 in bobby sox, penny loafers and faux pearls.) Nathaniel was painted just prior to his graduation from Western Reserve Academy and is wearing his school tie."
