Alastair: 12 Month Portrait by Alene Alastair: 12 Month Portrait by Alene
I did this portrait for my friend's birthday. She has a gorgeous little boy, and she was commenting to me about how much he changed from day to day, so I thought, as her birthday is in the same month as his, I would do a painting with 12 little portraits, one for each of the first 12 months of his life. I enlisted her mother to secretly send me fun photos so I could get lots of personality happening. 

There are VIDEOS on my blog - click through to see how I painted some of the little portraits! alene-art.blogspot.com.au/2017…

This is such a beautiful idea. I wish I were skilled enough to do the same about my son. I should practice to do so!

Thank you so much! (And thanks for the :+fav: too)
Practice definitely makes perfect - but I'm always open to commissions ^.~
