Untitled / 6×6 inches / oil on panel. This is a traditional portrait in that I wanted to capture these two beautiful kids and their comfortable connection at that moment. I’m really excited about how this painting turned out.
What should I name this painting? Right now it is “David’s Children” but there seems to be a narrative in this painting. Naming paintings is so hard!
The technical things I was working on were colors, values, brush strokes and edges, and getting the background into the right compromise between supportive and interesting.

I love the gentle mood here, Jessie, carried through in the light and handling of the background. Lovely!
They do seem very engaged … in something … maybe a story?
Thank you Xan! I am so impressed by all of the great painting you did over the last month!
Thanks, Jessie! It was a rush, but I’m still recovering, so yes, you and Margaret are both “mad”! LOL!
I’ll be talking about YOU in my next blog post. 😀
You are a wonderful painter, love your work! I found your blog from the 30paintings in 30 days challenge in Leslie’s blog! I have signed up too, are we mad?
Thanks so much, Margaret! Yes, mad! I needed an excuse to really exerciser the painting muscle. I’m on my way to visit your site.
