As I wrote on Loudoun Baby Artist yesterday, this past month has been super busy for my wife and I, what with midwife appointments and preparing for the birth of our son, who was born over a week ago now! We had a home-birth, and he was born in our bedroom with the morning rise of the sun. Thanks be to God. Now I know what everyone meant when they said we’d be tired. Good grief!
Anyhow, I’ve been working on this painting of my nephew, which I started before our son was born. Now that our son is here, I’m trying to finish up this painting so that I can do a painting of our baby boy!
Here is a photo of the progression of the oil portrait of my nephew. It’s getting close to being finished! My sister will be in for a surprise when she receives this in the mail.
