For Generations to Come
Apr 22, 2023
I have been working on portraits of a family that loves one another. Mother and Daughter adore each other. Four generations of men smile as they play with the newest generation among them. These paintings exude their happiness to be in each other’s company. It was a pleasure to paint them.
On the easel this week…. Time for color. This is usually a scary time – especially if I have gotten a good drawing. Got to hang on to those expressions. One at a time they started to come forward. It felt good to paint people who were feeling good. It’s catchy.
I am meeting my family friend to show her the paintings for the first time on Friday. She has been updated regularly, but seeing it in person will be real. Once I have finished, she will take over the day to day of loving the paintings. : ) Then, Little John will have a piece of art that will teach him to love and connect with original art that reflects our life and times.
The generations to come will have their own art, but this generation can teach by example to enjoy, create, love, and collect the art that connects with us. Thank you for being here to witness my contribution this week.
I love seeing your progression from drawing to painting. The blues are so peaceful.! They all look happy and that baby is in good hands, yours and their’s.
Thank you so much. It has been a great project. Coming to a close now, but they will have something lasting to enjoy.
this painting is beautiful in every stage of its progression. Very nice work!
Thank you so much! Feels good to hear that from someone who has seen my work from the very beginning.
And I am sure, a labor of love on your part…. it shows!
Good morning, Virginia. Yes, love rules the day!
I have enjoyed watching the progress everyday!
It’s great to see the progression, Michel! Thanks for sharing!
Because I know the members of this family since high school, and the family friend is one of my longest and dearest friends, it’s just awe and amazement that I continue to watch this beautiful piece of art and history come alive !! What a beautiful piece of work from the heart 🥰
BEAUTIFUL Michel!!!💓 What a TREASURE to pass down from generation to generation!💓
BEAUTIFUL Michel!!!!! You created a true treasure to be loved and admired from generation to generation!!💕
Thank you so very much. I was happy to show it to you.
