Twin Sisters

These beautiful little girls are great models for their handsewn heirloom dresses.  They were photographed in their grandmother's garden.  I love how the sun highlights their pretty red and blonde hair.

 Bruiser is a beloved pet and life companion to his owners.  
As I paint commissions, I send progress images to my client so that they can help me by critiquing to produce the portrait they desire.  Bruiser's owners sent me a lovely thank you, along with this timeline photo collection of the individual images I sent as I was painting.  We thought you might enjoy seeing how his painting progressed in my studio.  On the left is the original photo my client provided, then the progression from drawing to completed painting.  Thank you. Jim!
