“Devon with her Hair Down” by William Rogers

“Devon with her Hair Down”

20 x 16 in.

Oil on canvas

“Devon is a frequent model of mine and I always seem to catch something of her spirit, and so I have painted her many times. Her mother has purchased one of the portraits. Unfortunately for me, she is off to England working so I won’t likely get to see her again.”
