Trudi Pratt portrait by Phil Dynan and Anastasia Nelson

Trudi

As demonstrated with colour and motion, Trudi is, in real life, a highly energetic and positive person. She is a Doctor in Northern California and also leads a group that studies, discusses and promotes healthy food alternatives. Additionally, along with her husband, Marc, she is an avid explorer and traveller. A true burst of sunshine and high energy - as depicted by Phil & Ana in this 36 x 36in. canvas painting.

*Scheduled for an exhibit at the Chico Art Center, Chico, CA - opening in March, 2014.

 

Lalo Solache

Lalo

This is Lalo, on stage at the California State Fair, his face lit up by the stage lights. The straps are for his accordion - which he may well have been born wearing! His playing style and confidence allow the crowd to focus on the music. Lalo knows exactly what he is doing and the music he makes has the depth and understanding that he inherited from his father, Aurelio; and the beautiful grace that he inherited from his mother, Tomasa. This portrait is by Phil & Ana. 36 x 36in. canvas painting.

*Scheduled for an exhibit at the Chico Art Center, Chico, CA - opening in March, 2014.
