Sisters Portrait Drawing

Lately my wife and I have been talking a lot about what it will be like to introduce a sibling to our son. We’re currently reading a book called The Birth Order by Dr. Kevin Leman, and I read that introducing a sibling is akin to the ‘dethronement’ of the first child! We’ll have to make extraContinue reading “Sisters Portrait Drawing”

Outside of the Womb

Yesterday morning I finished a pencil portrait drawing of my son from either his 1st or 2nd day of life (I say it was the day he was born, my wife says it was the day after!) 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 Art – Drawing of my Wife!

Here is a portrait drawing that I’m currently working on of my wife Brigitta:

Grandmother Portrait Painting – “Abue”

A few weeks ago I finished this oil portrait painting of my wife Brigitta’s maternal Nicaraguan grandmother (or ‘abuela’, in Spanish). Her name was Rafaela Corrales Toruño, and Brigitta simply called her “Abue.” Abue had five children, three of which emigrated from Nicaragua to the U.S. in the 1970’s. Abue also came to the U.S.Continue reading “Grandmother Portrait Painting – “Abue””
