"You're My Cousin Buddy" by Julie Jacobsen
I know this took me a long long time but you have to understand that I had so many things going on
at home that I just couldn't quite get it done. One of the things was another painting that I did for my husband's nephew's wedding present. Once I completed that I was able to get back to this project.
Now, I don't know if I have mentioned this before but I painted this on a wrap around canvas. So I had to continue the painting onto each side. More work on that end but the best part is I won't have to frame it. It's ready to hang! Yay!
I really love this painting as I feel like it's a good composition. It keeps your eye wondering around in a circle. It's unified in all ways. These are my grandchildren, Brandon and Kyra, and I love them too! It's an intimate portrait showing their bond with each other. That makes for a successful painting, I think. I accomplished what I set out to do. I also left this a little rougher than my usual portraits. I wanted it to be more painterly.
Now it's onto the next project: another small wedding painting for my husband's brother that got married last year. Oh and I'll have to post the other one that was completed.
