One Cute Baby

As the mother of the most adorable baby in the world, I decided to paint a portrait of my little boy.  I’m afraid it’s from a photograph and not from life…try getting a four month old to hold still for 2 minutes let alone 2 hours haha.  Though purists will doubtless be appalled at the confession, I must admit I prefer working from photographs anyway.  So without further ado, here he is!  My little Daniel 🙂

    WOW! You are so amazing Shantell! I love the subject matter too. You’ve combined two of my favorite things; Daniel and your artwork. It doesn’t get much better than that for me.
