This is the last painting I can show you that is part of the Times Table series.
I’m not saying this series is finished, because I’d love to do more paintings
of families around their kitchen tables. But who knows when we’ll be able
to visit and photograph families, so I don’t know when I will be able to do more.
I love this painting. I love the joyful expressions on the faces. I love the feeling
of love that is so clear between everyone -- mom and dad, and the children.
I was doing these paintings from photos long distance, and it was so wonderful
that Auralee Wallace, (the beautiful mother in the painting) was so cooperative
about helping me. Plus it was more than that. Auralee understood what I meant.
Every time I described what I needed in a pose, the photos came in abundance
to help me get exactly the look that I was trying to create. It was a delightful
creative collaboration, and I’m so happy that the family has this painting.
Wishing you a joyously creative day.
