Children’s Portrait

2013 7 4 Cynthia 3 kids darkened


A few months ago I was commissioned to paint a portrait of children.  The family seemed very pleased with what I had done. The portrait is of three cute children.  Two little boys in stripped shirts are sitting on either side of their sister, who was wearing a polka-dotted dress. They are sitting on what looks like something a photographer would use when posing people for a photo, which is exactly what he did.

Smoky's Place

Smoky’s Place

Title: “Smoky’s Place”

Medium: Watercolor

Size: 14X18 inches

Price: Original $600

Prints: 16X20 inches $100 ea

Smoky is a black lab I was introduced to by some friends at Ocracoke Island, N.C.  Even though he has passed on, he still lives in our hearts. He is relaxing on what I call my favorite wharf on Ocracoke Island.  It is a hot summer day and he is off duty from retrieving waterfowl for my friend, Dan Robinson.  The pelicans swimming along side the dock are in no danger from him on this day.
