Baby Devlin Finishing Touches


I didn't do much more on this painting, but I did darken inside his mouth a bit and darkened just a bit in the hair on the sides. He's done - and I have a frame for him. We'll deliver him to Mom and get her reaction on Monday afternoon :)
This is an unsolicited painting so I hope she likes it.

Now we have plenty of work to do around the house and yard today - no fun but has to be done once in a while. I hope your day is spent doing something you enjoy.

The painting looks even better in person - delicate and gentle! I know they will love it.

I hope this means you're back in the painting mood!

It's a wonderful gift for the parents (and the baby, when he grows up).

I've framed him in a pale yellow frame which looks good with the pale colors and will take them Monday to his Mommy :)
Nava, I have started another painting - on Twinrocker paper! I thought, what the heck, I'm in a slump, let's get out the new stuff and see what happens! It's very different paper from Arches or Fabriano.

So cute! His mom is going to love this.

What a lovely gift for the new parents! How lucky they are. Rhonda, this painting is soft and juicy. The additional darks to the mouth was a good decision. Aren't portraits fun?

Thanks, Michelle and Doris :) I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. Looks like we won't be going to his Mommy's house until mid-week afterall. I don't know how we - well, really Jerry!, can be so busy - doesn't he know he's retired??
