Baby commission

Commission for Raphael and Keri of their new son Max.  (12x16") oil on canvas.
On occassion I have the good fortune to paint a commission.  I have been asked to paint things like homes, cottages, pets, boats and children.  I have always loved the idea of making a living simply painting, it's great fun for me.  This particular one was a blast and will always be memorable for me.  Raphael, asked me to paint his son Max for his wifes birthday.  He requested I place the finished painting in the window of my gallery with a note that said, "Happy Mothers Day Keri"...very cool idea, no doubt Raphael scored huge points for life with this one.  A wonderful family all of them.
