Here is another painting that I have been given permission to share, now that the gift has been opened. I've been enjoying following these little darlings on social media as they grow in leaps and bounds. I've mentioned in earlier blog posts the importance of preserving a moment in time in a professional oil portrait. Photos don't last, but oil paintings, when done properly, will last for hundreds of years. I often think about the person who inherits a painting such as this one, and how their life will be different than this moment in time.
