Asia & Dave’s Kids

Dave & Asia's Kids

A surprise gift for my brother and sister in law, this is my nephews Tyler and Adam, and my twin nieces Hailey and Lyndsay. I used a couple of different photos of them from their Disney vacation a few years ago (had to do some Facebook stalking for pics!).

Acrylic on canvas, 24×30, painted in 2013.

And an extra one of Adam because he was making a goofy face in the other pic.

Maddy in the Lake

Maddy in the LakeA portrait of my great-niece Maddy splashing in the lake, for her second birthday. Granted, it’s really more of a present for her mom and dad, but years from now, when she’s forgotten all the toys and outgrown all the clothes, the family will still cherish this painting. :)

Funny… they always tell actors not to work with kids and pets, and they’re both my favorite to work with.

Painted in 2013. Acrylic on canvas, 16×20.

This is an oldie… painted while I was in college of my three nieces. Some of it was painted while they sat for me, some from a variety of photos, because asking very active girls, then age 2 through 12, to sit still long enough to take their photo is hard enough, let alone sit for a portrait. ;)

Painted in 1993-ish. Oil on board, 18×24. Apologies for the blurry photo… I took the pic with my phone.
