I drew "Jenna" as part of a group of paintings/ drawings from photographs (with permission) taken by a GA. missionary who has been in Haiti for many years. His photos inspired me to paint them because the subject's true spirit shown through even with all the poverty and destruction there.
"Trent" is the brother of another boy I painted several years ago. Their mom wanted them portrayed participating in activities they loved. "Chance" was in his football uniform coming off the field after a game. I love when paintings tell a story - it makes them much more interesting.
"Kennan & Chase" are teen brother & sister. I enjoyed having the opportunity to paint them in a traditional pose with a abstract painting behind them. .....Lot's of fun!! Thanks to the parents for being so forward thinking. :)
