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 seeing the beach for the first time.

For our first son, it was easy to find the time to draw and paint him (I did 3 portraits!). For our 2nd son, it took me over three years to finish one! For our 3rd child (due later this year), they’ll be lucky to get a sketch (just kidding).

This painting was created on hand-stretched organic cotton canvas.

Late Night Studio Painting Photos

It’s been more than 2 years since I’ve planned to paint a portrait of my younger son, and I’m vowing to finally get it done before the new year, in between numerous other projects. Somehow, I just don’t have time like I used to when I had just 1 child, nevermind no children! What did I ever do with my time before? I know a lot of parents ask themselves that!

Here are some photos from a couple of nights ago, as I attempt to complete this before 2018 is over!

It’s been a rush, but I finally finished the last portrait painting on my list for the holidays, just in time for it to be given as a Christmas gift. A student midwives at NOVA Natural Birth Center commissioned me for this painting, to be given as a gift to her older sister. It’s an oil painting on a 16″ x 20″ Belgian Linen gallery-wrapped canvas.
