Humble beginnings

Connie, a family friend, asked me to do a portrait of each of her sons.  After meeting to determine the sizes and other specifications for the paintings, I (with some welcome help from my brother and sister) stretched and primed the canvases.  A few more coats of gesso, and I’ll be ready to begin.

    that incredibly attractive minion looks likes she’s doing a lot of your work. She probably should get at least 50% of the credit. Don’t you think? 😛
