Remember those days when you held your children close and read to them, seems like it was only yesterday. As I painted this portrait of a mother and her two small children, I took a walk down memory lane. Every day there was a special time carved out for reading, especially the book "I'll Love You Forever". What mom hasn't read that book to her children? Oh and if you haven't, run out and get it, you'll know why it's so special when you read it.
The two children in this painting are both grown now, they asked me to paint their portrait from when they were little and wanted to express something special for their mom. What a special Christmas present for her! I hope this special mom will enjoy this portrait for many years to come!
