Waiting for Daddy


SOLD

This is a painting of twin brothers, Henry and Michael, and their faithful companion Bucky.  It is a commissioned piece painted from a photograph furnished by their grandmother.  As soon as I saw Anne's photo, I knew that I wanted to paint these sweet boys, and it was a pure joy.  As was Anne to work with on the project.  Meeting new friends via this blog and Daily Paintworks has been such a delightful surprise.  I feel very thankful for all of you and for the daily dose of inspiration that you provide.  Thank you!

I hope you're all having a great week!  Take care and I'll talk to you soon.

Thank you, Azra and Amanda! I can't take credit for the sweet composition, though. It was in Anne's original photograph. These boys and Bucky are just too cute!
