Very powerful piece here Liza. Terrific palette. Are you familiar at all with Maine artist Brett Bigbee?
Keep up the great work!

This is a wonderful painting. You really have a feel for people. So real yet so expressive,

This is great! Love the colors. I'm doing some portraits of children and find them to be great subjects.

Thank you all very much for your kind comments!
Cooper, I didn't know Brett Bigbee before and found his work very interesting. Thank you for that tip! I could totally relate to the following about his art:
"Using himself, his wife Ann, and their sons Joe and James as models, Bigbee creates harmonious compositions in which color, gesture, expression, line, and form are as important as the likeness of the individual depicted."
