I was asked by a friend if I could do portraiture. My paintings are typically semi-urban landscapes or street scenes that rarely focus on specificity of those depicted. However, yes I am happy to do portraits, and its always nice to get a commission that gets me to return to a style I may neglect from time to time.
This painting was a wedding gift for a couple who are the parents of this joyful infant. We snuck the photo out of a photo collection they had online and surprised them.
