Oil Portrait of Judy Wathen, commissioned by her husband, Daniel Wathen.  The artist captures her elegant toughness perfectly.  Her stance is alert, composed yet ready to react.  The glint of light on her wedding ring ensures that we notice it, the symbol of her steadfast dedication to her marriage and family.  Family photos on the bureau reinforce this theme. A counterpoint is her other piece of jewelry, an unusual and striking heavy piece, chosen by a unique individual.   The portrait shows us a woman of dignity, courage, and personal style.
