This is a portrait I did last month for my portrait workshop. It is of my son, Blake and our dog, Twilight.
I wanted to capture a feel for some of his favorite things. The background is a splatter painting he did for his birthday party with some friends. He loves Mario Bros. anything and is an avid reader. And of course Twilight is his best friend.  

Blake is also an artist. Here is another sample of his recent work.

Lovely portrait, Leslie and Blake's work is wonderful, too. I know you'll be encouraging him to stay with it.

I am so glad that all of you like the painting. It is obviously special to me but I hoped to portray who my son is to others. Thank you for letting me know that I succeeded:)

Leslie you really have given a sense of what your son is like in your portrait. It looks great. His picture is pretty good too. He has a good sense of depth already in his landscapes.

Thank you Wendy :)

Your son seems bright and very happy. A beautiful and tender portrait.
