I painted this from a beautiful photo taken by Mike Helechu who is also a member on ArtWanted. Thank you so much Mike. It is an 8x10 oil painting on Gallery wrapped canvas.
God help me, I put aside a whole afooentrn to figure this out.

Dana, This is such a great post! I'm the oldest of four and at one time, when I was in mddlie school, my mom worked a lot so I was playing mom. Taking them down to get enrolled in school, cooking them dinner, taking them on long bike rides, etc. We don't get that time together anymore and I miss it because they mean the world to me. I too sometimes wish I could go back and wake up to a perfect world with my siblings, but life happens and hopefully the strong bond continues to keep you close. Crystal
What a wonderful painting from Mile's photo! He directed me to your wonderful gallery which I will look at to enjoy more of your fabulous paintings. Your artwork is outstanding!
Artist Reply: Hi Wia. I was so fortunate to have Mike give me permission to paint from his fantastic photo. Of all the paintings I have painted this is still my best one. I have received more comments on this painting then on any other one. I am glad you like it also.
