Like all mothers...I think I have the most beautiful children on the planet. And I take a ton of pictures. And occasionally I find the time to draw or paint them! About 3 years ago I did this watercolor of my son Jack - he's about a yr old in the photo, looking at an acorn in front of our house.
I took this photo of Arianna around the same age, also sitting in the driveway. I knew it would make a great partner to Jack's painting - and it only took me a year to finally get started! I would say I'm about 70% finished...I need to work on the colors in the face, make the shadow stronger and of course finish her other arm and foot.
