Little Irish Boy

Last week I was commissioned to paint three little Irish children and here is the first one.
Hasn't he got an angelique smile!? While painting him, I really fell in love with him.

What a beautiful portrait, Liza! His parents must be so happy.

Debbie Miller said...

OOH Liza, this is so sweet. It jumped off the screen at me. I could tell you fell in love before I even read the comment.

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you, Susan and Debbie!

Edward B. Gordon said...

I completely agree with Debbie, I nearly spilled my morning coffee over the keyboard.... so wonderful, Liza this is a masterpiece !

Ingrid said...

Liza, this is beautiful. And even if you would not have said it, I would have thought the boy to be Irish or at least of Irish decent, you captured that so well. I am looking forward to seeing the other portraits.
Best, Ingrid

Liza, I agree with Edward. YOur use of strokes and color convey a purity of feeling and innocence of this beautiful child.

Liza Hirst said...

Wow, guess I should paint little boys more often! I think I've never had so many comments of a picture before. Thank you very much, everybody!
Edward, I love your sense of humour!
