Max (finish)

I finally finished this small portrait of my son Max. This was too fun and i hope to paint him every year. I put it in a small antique frame that I bought on Ebay and I'm giving this to my wife as a gift. I'm posting a picture here of said cool frame.

This is oil on wood and is about 3 inches in diameter..very small.

I love how this turned out, Todd! It is just the sweetest thing. Max looks like quite the little man!

Amazing Todd. Great job.
I regret to report that I've involved you in a blog game of tag. Check my entry for 11/27 for more info.
Was in Wellfleet over the holiday. How's your stuff at Mary's doing?

I was hoping to see this one finished. Great skin tones and cute kid.

Thanks Liz and Rdl, Max is the best. Coop, you got me man, my stuff at Mary's sold out, I'm working on some new stuff rite now. I can't believe how consistent and strong your work is, fantastic. Good to hear from you Michael and thanks, I've been busy but following your work too..amazing and prolific. I'm anxious to hear Alison's reaction too, if it has Max in it, she usually loves it. Thanks again to you all,
