I know I showed off the painting I had done of Adam, but I'm just SO impressed with it I wanted to put it here with the original picture I gave to the artist.
By the way, Lauren's very thoughtful and I would highly recommend her if you ever want to have a portrait done. Here's her etsy shop. It's an elegant way to preserve time, and you get a piece of original art for your home! It's the kind of thing that becomes an heirloom. It was also very reasonably priced.
I personally believe a true artist captures not simply likenesses, but emotions and moments in time. The photo I sent her is of Adam sleeping in the quilt Tom's grandmother made for him when he was a baby. It was a special time in his infancy, when he stayed where I put him. Sigh...
For Christmas I'm going to take it to Michael's with my 60% off framing coupon! Merry Christmas to me!
