Paxton about 1 week old...with his first toys
8"x10" oil on canvas
I took this pic of my grandson when he was about one week old...this is Paxton's very intent look as he sees his first toys hanging above him...I love this little serene face of his...I just HAD to paint it. I DO think I will soften the toys a bit to bring him to the strongest focus, but I'm going to let it sit a day or so in my brain first. WHEW...5 portraits...only one I'm not happy with...which I've had SO many letters about not giving up I WILL most probably play with it instead of trashing it...Thanks for all the confidence you all...and the challenge!
The holiday time is fast approaching and I still have tons to do...one self imposed job is to paint a big ole santa face for our house...I'm dying to do a big one after all these little paintings...but, for now...we are temporarily down to just one car...MINE...so I have to drive my dear hubby down to meet a client...HAPPY CREATING!!
