Ms. Millie Decker
The Face of Malibu appearing in The Malibu Times
Oil on Canvas, 16 x 15, gold leaf.
Why do I love painting portraits so much? Because of moments like these and people like Millie Decker, Malibu's legendary cowgirl stilling roping in the charm at 92 years old. Her family was among the very first to settle in Malibu before it became, well, Malibu.I painted Millie in a single life sitting for  my Face of Malibu, a project of mine that is appearing in The Malibu Times. Storytelling meeting the painted portrait.
