My Nephew's Portrait
You are looking at the very first portrait I painted, from a photo I took of my nephew at a family gathering the prior Thanksgiving (I think). I should point out that his suit was actually grey. Since Wallace is red/green color-blind, I re-envisioned it in blues and yellows. The photo was one of our favorites, so I painted this for his birthday in March '09. He seemed very pleased with it and that made me happy.
