This is a new portrait I just finished. It is mixed media, 11.5″x15.5″ on rag paper.
I have been so crazy busy, unpacking only to repack again. We were in Grande Prairie for my art show ‘Moving Life’ ( I sold 11 paintings!) and now I am trying to get ready to go to Victoria. Poor Imogen is missing a lot of kindergarten but she had a wonderful time in GP and always loves her trips to Victoria so…..it is worth it to me. I guess that this will have to change next year, we can’t be missing too much of grade one.
Anyway, this portrait is what I have been up to painting wise. I am also working on another doggy portrait. (Another cutie … but you’ll just have to wait to see that one.)
This 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!)
