Last but not least...


My third and final grandson portrait for gift giving this Christmas. This was one of those times when, half-way through, it seemed like I was completely off, and was thinking of starting over. Luckily, I forged ahead, remembering how many times I've felt that frustration, only to be pleased in the end at the outcome. (Come to think of it, that happens in all sorts of places besides making art, doesn't it?)

I'm pretty happy with these three little portraits. Of course, the fact that these guys mean so much to me probably colors my perception a bit! They are a joy!

Ok Liz, so now I'm like, *spoiled* for seeing these portraits in your blog. Shall we see more in the future? It could be more of your grandsons, or of other people...I just love how you've captured their essence in each of one of them!

Hey Liz,

The portraits of your grand children are breath taking. I think you've managed to include your feeling for them in the finish. Really remarkable.
Stay warm,
Todd

Liz - you always pull something out of the hat to surprise and delight. These three portraits of your grandsons are exceptionally good. Wonderful work.
