Recent Portrait Unveiling

Early this month, my portrait of Ben and Gerri LeBow was unveiled and hung in the new Gerri C. LeBow Hall of the LeBow College of Business at Drexel University. The building replaces an older, outdated facility, and will truly be a beautiful and functional centerpiece of the school for many years to come. I feel honored to have been asked to paint this portrait. For a more detailed description of the portrait and the event, click on this link.

Here is a photo of me with Mr. LeBow in front of the painting. (The portrait looks a little dark because lighting was not yet installed.)

At the opening, I sat at a table with the LeBow grandchildren, who were all delightful young people. I also got a chance to reconnect with some of my former and future portrait "subjects." The surprise of the evening was seeing my childhood friend Daniela Voith. Danelli and I were in the same class at the Miquon School and shared many adventures. She was at the opening because her architectural firm, Voith and Mactavish, designed the beautiful new building! My husband snapped this photo of us.
