"The Jones Children"

"The Jones Children" oil 18 x 28

Reference Photo

This is my latest commission showing the grandchildren of my client's sister-in-law.  These are repeat clients, having commissioned portraits from me last year of their own grandchildren.

I love this photo; I think the look between the two older cousins is priceless. And I like that the boy on the left only has one shoe on. I worked especially to keep the brushwork lively to reflect the energy of these children.

My clients were delighted with their portrait.  They said when they presented it to their sister-in-law she loved it and got teary eyed.  That's my favorite reaction and it's always a wonderful reward.
