I recently did this portrait of Henry. His mom Elizabeth and her family had just moved to Memphis, and she heard about my work through her realtor, Meredith McDonald.
Henry is a lively, rambunctious three-year old. I love this portrait of him because it really captures his spirit.
I get to know all the kids I paint, because I want to capture what makes them unique. And they all have unique personalities, even at young ages.
As one of my clients puts it, kids have magic in them!
Elizabeth called me a few week ago to tell me how much she loves the portrait.
She also said Henry had changed so much since I then. And that she was so happy to have him captured at that age.
Time flies, doesn't it?
