14" x 11" Oil on Canvas
Last Easter our son and daughter in law hosted Easter Dinner for family and friends complete with an exciting egg hunt for the children. Twelve year old Zack found a perfect vantage point for overlooking the activities. The sun was kissing his temple and dancing off his hair creating a portrait artist's ideal model.
Zack and his little brother are grand nephews in our extended family. I wanted to see if I could capture the essense of the spring day, the twinkle in Zack's eye, his calm demeanor and his gentle smile. Pleased with the outcome, a photo of the painting was emailed to his mother requesting permission to blog post it. Lo and behold, she loves the painting and the wants to purchase it! How cool is that!!
Zack is holding his sunglasses so this portrait is included in the Shades Series which will eventually be come a book.
