Artful Living

good tidings

Good tidings are something everyone can relate to this time of year and trying to capture the family photo for the annual holiday card.

It never fails that when I illustrate people, they always ask me to make them taller, slimmer and richer.  As an artist, my sweet reward is to do just that.  However, this lovely family needs no tweaking as they are darn perfect perched on this metal farm gate.  I saved this image from last year and decided to paint it to add to my portfolio of people.  Perhaps a “pve” illustrated family photo will be on your list next year.
