Portrait Painting of my Son

Baby Portrait Painting FINALLY, I finished an oil portrait painting of my son! It’s been a couple years in the making. He’s now three (or, I like to say a “threenager”, which is a new term I heard from my wife the other day), but we took this photo when he was a baby seeingContinue reading “Portrait Painting of my Son”

Down Dog Yoga Portrait Painting

Work in Progress It feels like it’s been a long while since I’ve written a post here! In the past couple of months, I’ve mostly taken a break from painting, as I’ve been focusing my artistic energy on building out a few of my Etsy shops (The Accounting Artist, Spanglish América and Kids Yoga Art).Continue reading “Down Dog Yoga Portrait Painting”

Oil Portrait Painting – First Time at the Ocean

Vacation in Florida! Earlier this year, my wife, son and I went down to Palm Harbor, Florida to visit my parents in the same house that my grandmother used to live in.

We’ll have to make extraContinue reading “Sisters Portrait Drawing”

Either way, he’s such an angel and looked so peaceful laying on our bed, in the very spot heContinue reading “Outside of the Womb”

Arriving to the World

This drawing is of my son on the very day he was born. We had a home birth and he came out right on our bed, just as the sun was rising! It was magical. I thank God for my wife, our midwife team, pediatric chiropractor, and doula. Their guidance and care made for theContinue reading “Arriving to the World”

Portrait Painting of my Son at the Beach

A few weeks ago my wife, son and I went to Florida for a few days, and it was the first time our son saw the ocean! He was actually asleep when pulled in to the parking lot, so we carried him out in his car seat and sat on the beach, about 30 ftContinue reading “Portrait Painting of my Son at the Beach”
