One of many art goals is learning to paint people. I painted my two kids and my niece and nephew a couple summers back. Now they are all in high school and have grown and look different. So, I am so glad I captured this moment in time. This is my nephew Jackson. I also painted my niece Lilly, son Owen, and daughter Katie. I will add those to later posts. I have always felt like I was better at girls and boys/guys/men are so hard to represent, so I was particularly happy when I felt that this painting not only looks like him but brings across some of the spark that I see in him.
