Oil Paint on Canvas
9" x 12"
During my short time back in my hometown, when I went to help my father set up his social media sites, I was able to spare a bit of time to visit my cousin Christiane and her family. Christiane and I have been close my entire life. She was four years old when I was born and she just fell in love with me. She would drag me around everywhere and we've been best cousins ever since. Nowadays, with me living in Toronto, we barely get to see each other. It was so nice to see her, her husband Calvin, and OF COURSE my two nephews Simon and Jeremy! The cost of travel is too high so this was my first time meeting Jeremy; what a treat! They are such a beautiful family. :)
You can imagine how excited I was when Christiane and Calvin commissioned me to paint a portrait of my nephew Simon! He is such an adorable "little man"; as I like to call him. So smart and mature. Absolutely adorable. I believe originally Christiane hoped to have a series painted of all her children to be put up in the bedroom and I think that is such a lovely idea. I hope they love their portrait!
