|"The Jones Children" oil 18 x 28|
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.
