"PAXTON MARK GRIMES" ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING © NANA

Paxton Mark Grimes at 3 months
oil on canvas 6"x6"

Well, painting number one is complete...as near as I can in one sitting...there will always be the recheck after I've been away from it for awhile...He's my sweetie for sure...And, I'm off and running...I'd like to do several paintings of this boy for different members of the family before I'm done...WHEW...as usual...my December will be crazy busy...A big thanks to my friend Carol Nelson who gave me great advice IF I was going to attempt to paint a baby as to colors...Babies are hard to do as there is so little to them...ha...no wrinkles, no eyebrows...no wrinkles...but, my family wouldn't wait! LOL

I was also happy to find out I got "Late Summer Aspen" in a show that will be hanging at the Madden Museum in January...

And, Thanksgiving was wonderful!  I hope you all had a great turkey day too!  We were able to see my parents and my brother and his family; some of whom I haven't seen in many years...I'm unabashedly sharing photos of my wonderful family...topped off with my and my little guy of course!!  This is my wonderful brother Rick; who just so happens was having a birthday!

My sister-in-law Lori who I have shared MANY moments of pure delight...we laugh well together!!

And...my two beautiful nieces Kensey and Kaitlinn...I got to make jewelry with them and we had a ball!!
Grandpa Jerry got to meet his grandson for the very first time as we drove back home through Wichita where he was meeting his other great grandparents...
I've got to make a blurb book...whew...so little time and so much I want to do!!  

AND...of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on our little bundle of joy myself...Nana and Paxton...
What next??...well, more paintings of Paxton, and finishing my paper cast acorns, and doing something new and fun...I best get to it!!

HAPPY CREATING!

Your family is beautiful, Saundra! I love it when your brother comments here; I think that is so cool. Your nieces look like their dad, especially the oldest! But I do see their mom in them too. Sounds like it was a most wonderful Thanksgiving! Hope your dad is feeling good. The painting of Paxton is just phenomenal! He has a gorgeous little mouth.
