On the rare occasion, I do portraits, this one I finished Spring 2013. A lovely young mother & son in pastel & conte’. It measures 16″x 15.5″. I just love that special connection children have with their parents, its written all over their body language.
I sold this piece at auction after making some slight changes in highlights; unfortunately I didn’t take a new photo. The following description went along with the work…
“Having so much fun with you” is the inspiration and message of this piece. At the age of 17, a family is realized by the birth of a child. This captures a young, learned mother at age 24 and the carefree innocence she shares with her son, age 7.
