Max and Dad

One of the drawbacks in not blogging as often as I would like to, is that I don't get round to all the blogs I want to!  Falling behind means that I spend about a day catching up on my blogland friends and missing out on others.  So for that, I apologise.

And unfortunately the situation is going to continue for the next month at least.  We have two exhibitions coming up, one which is juried, which I am involved with, plus all the paperwork that has to go out before the events.  So, as a result, my painting has been limited to twice a week which are non-negotiable times, and very little is coming out of the art room.

This one I did some time ago for a friend.  It's her gorgeous son, Max (who was so proud when he saw himself!) and hubby.

So touching. I am just now thinking of doing this!

I want to paint my two grandsons. They stayed with me for seven glorious weeks and then went back home to AZ. I'm in Michigan....I miss them more than I can say. I think painting them would help ease my pain!

Thank you for your inspiration!
Best and Blessings,
Cherie

This is terrific! I love it...your colour tones are so warm!

And as far as making our rounds here in blogland, I do know what you mean. I find it's been extremely hard, but we all do as best as we can! So, no worries!
