Nostalgia – December 29, 2009

“A man can do only what he can do. But if he does that each day he can sleep at night and do it again the next day.”
– Albert Schweitzer


5″ x 7″ Acrylic Greeting Card

I found these black photo cards and thought it would be perfect for this painting of a lovely nostalgic lady.  I did this with my Golden fluid acrylics, mixing some of the Iridescent Copper (fine) in with some of  the glazes at the end.   Sorry about the glare from the sunlight, but when I scanned her, she was just too flat.

About Albert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer, the German medical missionary, won the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian work at a hospital in French Equatorial Africa, where he treated and operated on thousands of people, including hundreds of people afflicted with leprosy. He was also an organist, famous for his interpretation of J.S. Bach’s music. Late in life, he worked with Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell against nuclear proliferation. He was born in 1875 in Kaysersberg and died in 1965.
