"NEWBORN PAXTON" ORIGINAL OIL PORTRAIT REVISITED © NANA

"Newborn Paxton"
6"x6" oil on canvas

Well...due to overwhelming love and nagging I decided to quickly revisit my earlier "failure" at Paxton's newborn portrait.  I'm glad you all nagged me...this is a better likeness, so I'll throw it in the pot for family to choose from...I played with his eyes a bit...I changed the background, I blended a bit and voila a little better!

I'm happy to report some earlier concern over his swallowing ability (a swallow test at the doc's office) has shown that he is fine...just a little thingy not fully formed...should be all good by the time he's a year old! YEA!  I didn't want to say anything cuz I was nervous...you know how it is...but we are relieved and happy that they will be coming just after Christmas so Nana can get Christmas pics in front of our real tree (his first and only this year) of that precious baby!  Can't wait! Here are all of them together...:)
We are snowed in today...ha...so what else is new...it's COLD and a little isolated...but will give me a great opportunity to start a big ole Santa head I've been wanting to paint forever for our house...I'm looking for great references...and SINCE the real Santa is so busy I may have to borrow from what I find on the web...wish me luck!!  Both for the painting and the digging out...

Yep, I'm goin nowhere until we find the rest of our stairs to the garage!!

HAPPY CREATING!!

Une adorable admiratrice a crée un magnifique portrait de mon petit-fils au pastel. Elle l'a publié sur son blog :

After looking at your reference picture of Paxton...I see how you captured his adorable face. You did a wonderful job with the skin tones! Glad you stopped by my blog so I can enjoy your beautiful paintings.

Saundra, I knew this was my favorite (though admittedly it is hard to choose from all the glorious Paxton paintings) and I am so glad you didn't paint over it! It is fabulous! I love newborns...so tiny, so beautiful, so precious. But then all stages are the same so don't mind my rambling. I also love when they begin to smile. So glad to hear that Paxton is doing well and doc pronounced that he is fine and will be growing out of the swallowing issue. My oldest grandchild, my grandson Darren, was born with "tongue-tie," not something I'd heard of unless it meant you couldn't speak well in front of others kind of thing. Turns out there is more to it than that. It has never caused him any problems though.

Love all your snow! We've only had a wee bit a week or two ago. Nothing on the ground now and no chance of snow on Christmas. We may have some flurries today but then it warms up again. Do be careful out there in all that gorgeous fluff!
