Jude

This is my son. I've been wanting to paint him for a while and I loved the colors in this photo. This was one that felt like it flew out of my brush. Unlike a lot of others, there were no major struggles and it was fun and exciting the whole time. For some reason, the ones that seem effortless, turn out to be my best paintings. I just need to figure out how to make that happen for all of them!

Milkshake

These are the same two kids from the last painting. The person commissioning the painting sent several photos to choose from and I picked this one because I thought sharing a milkshake had a Rockwell charm to it.
