Painting of Matthew


Day one.

Day two.
I did this portrait of my son from a picture taken when he was two. I really like doing children's portraits. I'm giving this to my son, for him to keep. He liked it when I showed it to him, he said it made him feel like summer time!

I can't believe he's six years old today! I love you, Matty baby!

Happy Birthday Matty!

You certainly caught an impish glow about the eyes in this painting. And Matty is definitely correct. The painting does feel like summer (which we could all use about now!)

I agree with 5thsister, nice portrait. Something very special and you can't buy one like it.

How wonderful. You paint!. You did capture Matthew's sparkle. You must be cool if you like Tom Waits.

Happy Birthday Matthew!! Hey, Glen will be 6 on Thursday! I love the painting. Glen has a painting of toy bears I gave him once. He's very proud of it, but I working on a portrait of him.

Lucky boy, such a special present from his mom.
