Painting a Surprise

The Thursday before Christmas I was painting a surprise gift for my sister and her family...

... I was pushing around paint..

...and this is how it turned out...

I think it's a close likeness, boy was it difficult though to capture his expression! There are a few things I would change given more time.  Serves me right for leaving it to the last minute.

 Sharing with:


  1. Tracey these are just the most beautiful pair, and so glad we got to see them together.... sure they were a huge hit and will be treasured... hope you got to paint more paint around today...xx

  2. Oh my goodness what a truly wonderful gift for your sister - awesome!
    Happy New Year to you Tracey :)

  3. You did an awesome job capturing the moment and his expression! What a thoughtful gift too.

  4. This is pretty adorable! I know your sister will love it.
