As you know I am loving working in this collage form. I had three canvases that had been half painted, but never satisfactorily done, hanging around my studio. After finishing the first couple of portraits, I really wanted to try with more family. Especially the three middle girls (the books ends in terms of age, Eloise, eldest (and beautiful young adult) and Nate, (the youngest and still a toddler) have yet to be done).

I am really enjoying this creative journey, many more to come!
