Portrait of Julie Haga

"Portrait of Julie Haga" by Andrew Daniel
20" x 16" oil on canvas board
In the collection of Earl Haga
When my friend's mother passed last year, I was asked to do this portrait, to be displayed at the funeral. It was so touching to be part of the communities grieving process. I was honored to be asked to do it. It felt like one of the more important paintings of my career, in that it helped people to feel as if she was still there with them.

The water was so peaceful, I could see the world reflected as if on glass, and the morning haze collecting in the trees... This is what silence looks like.

I'm fascinated by this rock formation at Moonstone Beach. I really enjoyed painting the reflections in the water.
