Some of my favourite commissions have been of families. There
Is such power in the love that bonds families together. For a
portrait artist this means getting to know the family, learning
about their passions and what they're proud of.  Sometimes
even the youngest members in a family have things they
want you to know as the artist painting a work that will
record a memorable phase in their lives.

It's Family Day tomorrow (today depending on where you
live) in Ontario -- an official public holiday, and that's a
wonderful idea.  To mark this joyful occasion in the month
of love, I am posting a couple of my happy family portraits.
Thank you collectors.  And if your family needs a family
portrait, I would be more than happy to help you with that

Wishing you a very Happy Family Day!

These pictures themselves are lovely and you've captured their beauty.

Thank you Judi,

The people were wonderful! The hard part is letting go of the intensity of getting to know people so well when the job is done.

You are doing smashing work!
