42/52 A Portrait a Week

I apologize that the quality of these photos aren’t better.  It was a commissioned piece for my stepsister of my nephew, Jax.  I gave it to them at the family Thanksgiving.  She showed it to Jaxon who smiled and pointed at it making a happy noise.  She asked who it was and he said, “daddy”.  He does look a lot like his dad!




IMG_9183My friend asked me what I call this new technique I’ve been doing.   All I could think of was rainbow explosion drawings.  There’s probably a better one out there…

      Thanks! It was really fun. There was a moment when it stopped looking like him and I got really nervous. But then it came back to looking like him again- phew!

    It is so light and has so much energy–it makes me want to breathe it in! It puts me in mind of friend and mentor Margaret Andersen’s work–and that’s a nice place to be–beautiful!

      Is that Margaret from MN? Who we had hanging in our house? If so, that’s a great compliment. If not, I need to look her up!

    That’s our Jaxon! Love the colors, composition, and how well you captured him. From Facebook, it looks like a lot of people are interested in commissioning you. Congrats.
