A Portrait of My Son

When Jack was born, I painting this picture of him to present to my husband on Father’s day. As a professional illustrator, I often painted from photographs, but I always used the opportunity to add a bit of my own flavor to the photo, to enhance what I saw in real life. Jack as a baby was in a state of perpetual wonder at the world.
