Happy Beautiful People in Love!
I was loving life when I was given this commission. It was gorgeous weather outside, I had my easle set up on the deck, baby monitor on hand and was just adoring these faces! They were glowing, and I guess just being so present and focussed, painting these smiling happy, beautiful people… I became infused, filled with their happiness.
I have to add, painting his beard was awesome. Something Van Gogh about it.
