Jacob – Portrait?

jacobThis is Jacob, my nephew.  I did this a while ago but just realized that I never posted it because it was a surprise Christmas present.

Portraits … they are a love hate thing for me.  I love painting children but portraits,  not so much.  To me, this is more of a painting, though it does look just like him, it catches something more.  His gentle, compassionate side.  His shyness, his intensity, his kindness.  He is a wonderful boy, he is so caring with Imogen and Scarlett, not to mention his two younger brothers.

AND he is my biggest fan!  (Hi Jacob!)
