Yesterday I posted a painting I did of our granddaughter, Rachel. Today it is Ryan's turn to be featured. This was painted for our Christmas card in 2006 from a photograph I took of Ryan in May of 2006, when he was two years old. We were at a restaurant celebrating the 16th birthday of our granddaughter Jennifer. Ryan was not happy because he had been confined to a high chair for some time, and that unhappiness was reflected in his expression. Oh- by the way... Santa was not a guest at the party!

Barb, how good you are at capturing expressions and moods....this is difficult to do in anyone, but I find it especially difficult to do with children's portraits. These are great, and I find them inspiring me to try another portrait of our granddaughter.

Susan, Thank you for the compliment - perhaps they were successful because I love them so much. They live just around the corner - what a blessing!
