Archie's mom asked me to paint two pieces for her, which I delivered last night. That's always fun and a little nerve wracking...the big reveal. I love seeing the reactions from my clients in person, which makes working with local people here in Lynchburg really fun. Plus, I got to meet Archie's new little brother, who I'll be painting when he turns one a year from now.
I'll miss having Archie around the house, he sure is a cute little guy!
After my TypeFace show in September, I was blessed with a number of commissioned portraits to do.
This first batch is of four, full-of-energy-and-personality, siblings. For all my portraits, I like to use my own photographs. So, one Sunday afternoon we had a fun photoshoot to capture the perfect shots to work from.
I've been using Annie Sloan products in my work lately as well - so each background is painted, waxed, sanded, waxed more, sanded more, painted more, etc etc until I get that fuzzy feeling that tells me it's complete.
So without further ado, here's Jack, Charlie, Katie and Stuart!
