Another thing I've been dying to paint again are people! For a while, years ago, I thought I would be a portrait painter. But life had different plans, and thank goodness - since then I've spoken with several portrait painters who hate painting for other people and dealing with fussy parents. So I figure I'll do this for fun. Below is a kid I know very well. I want to see if his mom recognizes him, so ... if you do, please leave a comment on my blog saying so.
