The painting above, “Ben, Anna & Charlie” has been a very special commission for me on many levels. The children (and their parents) are all close to my family. Anna was one of my first art students and the boys are both good friends of my son. I began this painting over a year ago and shortly upon starting it I lost my mother. I am grateful to my clients for being so supportive of my work and of me during that difficult transition. Working on their painting became very therapeutic and when I look at it now I see a lot of growth in me, both from a technical standpoint as well as emotionally. I would often catch myself smiling back at them as I painted each of their faces. And I am sure I will miss seeing them everyday in my studio now that it is finally going home.

I want to formally thank Stacy & Brian for allowing me the privilege of painting their beautiful children. Your family has been quite a blessing to me. Thank you!
