Mother & Child

Phineus was born in November, and I attempted a Mother and Child painting in late December.  Priscilla was actually doing a drawing, and Phin was sitting in his little seat.  Every time she picked him up, I tried to paint him.  I liked the start, which was painted in one shot,  but I couldn't get back to it.  A few days later, I tried to work on it again, but over did it.  I'll think about this one for a while, and I'll try to tone it down and finish it.  For me, if I can have a solid chunk of time to paint it in one shot, or alla prima,  I am usually happier with the results.

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful painting! I've been checking your blog for some time now and it was well worth the wait. Thanks!
