Tomorrow is my beautiful grandson's 8th birthday and sadly I will not be there to share it with him. And his wonderful mother has her birthday the following day with my one and only granddaughter (whom I have never seen in person) celebrating her first birthday the next week.
Now, as is the case with all first born children, there are hundreds of thousands of photographs of Andreas, so I have plenty to choose from to paint.
But I am ultra lucky if I get one or two of Catherine! Maybe they'll take the hint and send me a whole bunch of the little lady so I can get to paint more than the one I already have.
This was done from a photograph taken when they were last in SA almost 2 years ago, but I liked it, so I painted it, and it is one I'm going to keep!
