Nathalie, Gianni and Scout

Oil on canvas, 24" x 34"
NFS

I'll be direct posting to the blog until my server problems are solved.

This is a commissioned portrait for a family in the Cape Cod area. I shipped the completed painting off, and a week or so later received this wonderful photo of the twins in front of it. Click images to enlarge.

Whoa - a beautiful piece. I expect the parents were crying when they saw this.

Great piece, Don. "Scout," really adds to it as well. Nice touch.

Even the dog's stick is smiling!!
Great job! So excrutiating to work from photos, and you do it so expertly!
Now, how about a painting of that top photo?? A double double portrait! I love that little painting with upturned head over to the left side!
