This is my little one. It’s painted in acrylic on canvas panel, 12x16in. This piece was one of two winners in the monthly contest at the April meeting of the Lake County Art League.
It’s been a while since I worked from life instead of photographs. It’s hard to find people willing to sit and hold perfectly still. My kids did the best they could; I did the best I could. But still, though there is more imprecision involved in drawing a moving target, there is a freshness in drawing from life that I need re-injected into my work from time to time.
