Flying

12 x 12 oil on cradled wood panel, private collection

My daughters' childhood friend has grown up, married and she has a new baby. I have memories of my own girls at this age at the beach. Their dad could always make them laugh the hardest.

Camille, this is just so beautiful. Is this your girls' dad? Funny how dads can make the kids laugh the hardest; I wonder why? Anyway, I love this precious piece; a pose that is timeless for dads the world over.

This was inspired by a photo of my daughters' friend's baby and the baby's dad. However, after I finished this I realized that I had made the baby look more like my own two girls (especially my younger one). It was entirely subconscious, too, that I did that. :D Which makes me love this one even more. I may have even nudged the dad into looking more like my husband back then, haha.
