Tracy and Peyton - commissioned portrait.


Tracy and Peyton
8x10 inches
Graphite Pencil on drafting film
I feel like I have been given such a gift and my heart sings when I am presented with reference photos that capture tender moments such as these and I am asked to do a portrait from it. You know from the outset that the portrait will be a joy to do, because it gives the artist an opportunity to draw with emotion. Anybody who has been a parent will relate to the incredible love you feel when you hold your tiny, sleeping child in your arms - a love you never knew you could feel until your first child is born. What a privilege to be asked to draw this scene!!!

A privilege indeed and you pulled it off magnificently.

Being a Mom and and a Nana. I relate that feeling. Nothing in the world like it.

Wonderful job Karen.

A most gorgeous little newborn, and a quite pretty mommy too. Beautiful work, Karen, but then that is no surprise at all. All your work is exquisitely beautiful.

Tracy & Peyton are my beautiful daughter & grandson. What a very emotional moment it was for us all when Peytons Nanny gave his mummy this amazing work of art on Mothers Day. Karen you have an incredible talent.
